Showing incredibly well. Perfect secondary development. Tannins are a bit dry but doesn't subtract from the easy drinking elegance. @Pignetti's Restaurant, Temple TX

Has yeas to go with its nice full bodied sweet hay, deep purple fruit and nicely integrating tannins.

Always a showstopper. Outdrinks many others at twice the price. Beautiful melange of old word body and spice with lingering new world fruit.

A vintage that doesn't get enough respect. Many, like this wine, tasting beautiful.

Much earthier and more charred meaty than the last bottle I popped. Some huge variation, but all good in different ways.

This bottle was a little off - super high EA that blew off. The palate was silky gorgeous with perfect acid. The ea faded into violets, charred meat, and stewed prunes. Was also a touch dusty.
