Amazing. Continued to blossom with time. Layers of boysenberry, dark chocolate covered cherries. Tobacco. Cedar chips.

Think we had a corked wine. That pungent nose released a bit, but still tainted the experience. Softer tannins, but astringent taste. Too bad.

Still youthful. Opaque dark ruby color. Lots of red and black currant fruit, hints of tobacco, leather, spices. But, it’s just lacking something in the middle.

A wonderful soft delivery of blackberry and cherry. Tannins are still present, but background noise to the fruit that is pushing forward to say hello. Delicious.

Masterful. Aged to a nicely smooth black cherry festival. Waves of red and black fruit.

It Was the battle of the 1999’s tonight!
I believe this came in second place. Very light and somewhat Bordeauish in style.
The tannins are gone, the dark opulent fruit is gone, I’m getting forest floor, Dark cherry, Graphite and a medium to long finish. I think I may prefer it to drinking young!

Still a baby - but drinking well. Inky dark with black and blue fruits, butter with sage and spice aromas

A nice wine but the vintage and reputation had me hoping for more
