From a restaurant list, decanted and poured. Great nose right out of the gate. Notes of dark fruit, creme de cassis, tobacco leaf, cigar box and earth. Really good in the mouth, with nicely matched fruit, acidity and resolved tannins. Silky texture. This is in a good spot.

This was a baby. Nose totally closed at the beginning and took an hour to blossom. In general this is a wine that's just shut down right now and still needs a few years before you try.

In magnum. Holy crap this was good. Dark fruit, Cassis blackberry, but earthy and still had these amazing soft tannins. Did not show its age. Still a lot of life left.

What a crazy awesome wine! It has it all, pure fruit profile, great acidity and a nice grip, with long finish. Everything is balanced well. So much energy for a 24 year old wine. Last month I had the 94 Harlan, 94 Colgin HL, and 97 Colgin HL, and this blew them all away.
