These things are crazy. Opened one 5 years ago that was completely undrinkable, but this one was better. It needed about 30 mins of air to show any fruit, but it finally peaked out a little along with fennel and very strong acidity. Based on the slight improvement from 5 yrs ago I’m intrigued but I’m not opening another one for at least 5 more.

Fascinating wine that evolved over three days. Stunning aromatics that showed oxidative elements along with fresh, green, herbal notes. So much structure and acid. I suspect this will last for decades more.

Great stuff offering evolved pineapple and dried peach aromas. Dense and rich, with an underlying structure, guaranteeing this wine to cruise for many years still.

To say this evoked Indian spice is a terrible understatement. This wine smelled/tasted like curry chicken salad, including the mayo, celery and little golden raisins. Fascinating and delicious.

A little earth and funk with a solid core of beautiful fruit. Still fresh , and intense I have not had this in 5 years but it's holding up well.

Dead cool. Some nutty sherry notes and wicked cool-climate Chardonnay acid. Grouse wine.

2009. Fiercely decanted. Chewy hazelnuts, tiny white flowers, a strawberry patch, etc...

1990; close to perfection, this bottle provided a history lesson on its own. Crystalline aromas and flavors with a pulsating finish where hard-to-beat minerality take centre stage.
