13' Hartwell T-5. I have never posted wine that I received before. I was a little excited to receive this famous bottle of wine. I'll open my first one in about five years.

One of the first 2013s to really show through as I haven’t seen too many that aren’t overpowering at this point. If I could attach the clip of Rodney Dangerfield I’m Back to School where he recites the poem - he keeps saying “Yes”..... then that’s what I would’ve done here. Not that @Benoit Touquette would understand the reference anyway....

This is craziness but this is the 2nd time I’ve pulled one of these out in the last couple weeks. The other week it wasn’t close to this one. Tonight it’s about 98-100. Unreal.

Definitely needed at least an hour decant first. Not as much fruit as normal so wondering if the 2013s are starting to shut down a little. But this is an excellent wine. @Benoit Touquette rarely makes a bad one. ....never

Very hard to rate. It is sooooo good. I know it’s young, but the nose on this thing is tremendous. @Benoit Touquette Another amazing wine. #biased
