Notably better than a bottle last March. This is showing a little more delineation and offers a nice, velvety mouth feel. I don’t know that I would cellar this for the long haul, but it’s a good Bordeaux blend to enjoy now and over the next 2-3 years.

Could use more definition and oomph. Pleasant enough; it just fell a little flat and short of expectations.

Decanted for 90 minutes. Cherry and leather on the nose. Notes of blackberry, cassis and tobacco on the palate with a long, spicy finish.

This aged wonderfully. flavors were perfectly coalesced and texture had become silk.

Fine komplex NW. Cuvee, mit really a spezifische Region. Real modern Stil but in Balance.

Not at all overdone. A positive surprise. Not complex but a pleasant bottle overall.
