What a surprise! This hadn’t moves since release. Perfect cork, perfect night, almost perfect wine.

This could be from any of the following regions: Paso Robles, Rioja, Barossa, Mendoza, or Napa Valley. This is an abomination, void of terroir, void of individuality. This is all barrel with no acid. This is a wine-shake

Well the style certainly has not changed much from then to now.

I thought it was an old CdP tasted blind, lots of sweetness and glycerin with plum and berry fruits. Expected more meaty notes and spice.

There was not a dramatic difference in flavor than the 89. Both beautiful to drink although I'd prefer to be sitting by the fire on a cold Winter evening with this one.

2003. Getting tired. Still enjoyable, but it's time to drink up.
