Lovely Bordeaux at its peak, this 23 year old wine is well balanced with solid notes of earth, coffee, mushrooms, tobacco, tea leaves, leather, cherries, plums, medium to full body, Round tannins, the fruit is giving up to animalistic notes and the finish is pleasant. My score 89, drink up

As classy as they come; medium-bodied, fresh and layered with partly resolved tannins, cedar notes, red and black currant flavors, earthy minerality and a lovely, vivid finish.

The 82 is shining, perhaps just at or past the peak. Delightful menthol and tobacco aromas with just enough fruit to tie it all together. Herbaceous beauty, this one is.

Took a little time in the glass before aromas of candied cherries, tobacco and earth. Seems to have past the drinking window as the medium-bodied texture seems a off balance with oak and acid overpowering the minimal fruit left. Still drinkable, but definitely going downhill.

Garnet with a tawny rim, ripe blackberries and subtle spice. Aging well, fine integrated tannins.
