While this bottle is better, hardly worth the 18 years of patience. Monday night wine.

Crunchy red fruits, rhubarb, black tea, licorice. 2017 opens nicely and has a lot to offer.

What a treat: has a mean streak, meant in the nicest possible way- a dark, dark core, like Ribena (for Brits) but edgier, & gorgeous layers of red fruits built around that petrolly, black currant core. At first I thought Ribero when drinking blind! Much more nuanced & subtle.

Clean and fresh red fruit aromas. No noticeable Brettanomyces on the nose. Tart cranberries and dark cherries on the palate. Very pretty and elegant.

Drink up. Some wild red fruit remaining but not much acid and likely won't get much better.

Lemons, nuts, but no acid, sadly. Good, but on the downslope

Better than 2008 but still wanted a little more from it.

Maybe it's just shut down, but it just seemed clumsy. Not much pinosity outside the structure and somewhat flat red fruit.
