A bit tired. May be a provenance issue.

Decanted for three hours. In a good spot, but you should probably hold. With pizza and Caesar salad for the man's birthday.

Significant difference in profile over 30 mins. Starts off with big cranberry and a tart finish then evolves to a mature red fruit and earth overtones - significant improvement in balance over time - can't wait for next Friday to pair with duck and foie gras!

Showing some subtle age characters though lovely balanced fruit with flowers and spice - drinking well

Much goodness here, but also too much stewed fruit at this point. Beautiful tannin and wood integration, and the savory notes are on point. If I had a second bottle, I'm 60 percent sure I'd wait five years and hope for a better fruit outcome. 40 percent of me says drink before more stew comes.

110 purchase from babbo worth every cents. 3 hour dinner wasn't enough for it to open as I wished but still amazing

2004 - Firing on all cylinders, supple red fruits are propped up with wonderful acidity, rose petals, anise, and a touch is tar.
