Full bright ruby. Sexy if somewhat funky aromas of cassis, black cherry, leather, mint and eucalyptus, lifted by a note of black pepper. Deep and vinous, with its dark berry and mint flavors joined by slightly rustic pepper and leather notes. More savory than sweet; not squeaky-clean but has the energy to support slow evolution in bottle. Finishes with rather suave tannins that turn a bit dusty with air, perhaps due to the wine's savory herbal element. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, July 2019)

Expressive aromatics and plush red fruit, hints of tobacco, structured tannins and an overall amazing drinking experience are just some of the notes I have recorded on this 2004 vintage 15 years after being harvested.

I found this to be in a very nice place. Deep fruits, mint, hints of flowers dancing on top. Some of the tertiary flavors of fennel, leather and a touch of sage wove their way through on the length finish.

Very complete and plummy. Spearmint and a fennel seed and white pepper palate. Fresh still. Very good.

Translucent and pretty resolved cherry flavors with menthol. Gorgeously light and focused. Excellent

It was a slow build but this reached impressive heights. A classic being classic.

Less interesting than previous tastings of this case in my cellar...cork was dry and shattered even with Durant...tannic and brutish...mid body never showed up much and day later in decanter was the best cough menthol cough syrup ever :)
