Tasted blind. Very Bordeaux. Tar, leather and graphite. Intense fruit, balanced and a towering structure. Impressive but quite tight at this point. Needs some time.

Agree with others about its Bordeaux quality. Structural beam of graphite with dark red and black fruits. Never comes across as overextracted, keeps an elegant litheness to it. Excellent with mushrooms and braised short rib. 2013 vintage.

Key word is smiling - details - Boudreaux blend with 75% cab - Galloni and RP like it and thought I would procure and yes it is a baby but OMG it is damn good right now - I had Ric stuff before and it was good but this is his best of the four vintages I had

This is big bold and beautiful - it jumps at you with intensity and power and energy - and still smooth - please decant as I did for two hours

Dark purplish fruit is blowing away my nose and steering to happiness with the taste and finish - this is an old school taste I remember when I fell in love with Napa cabs - this baby will keep growing as it rest for a long time - bravo Mr Forman - and summing it up - all SMILES
