I absolutely loved this wine. Friend was a wine club member. Seemed pretty limited. Have never found this anywhere. Paired with a steak this blew my pallet away.

The 2011 Wine Spectator wine of the year. 100 points by WS. This bottle lives up to the accolades. Wowza!

So refined and smooth across the tongue. 15+ sec finish is the reason it was #1 for spectator in 2011. Score whore

Strong and broad linear stroke of toast and acid forms the back bone. Sweetness of wood and fruit show off big black berry, blk pepper and bacon.

Oak, earth, and leather nose. Black cherries, cola, and plums on palate. Spectacular!

Wine Spectator #1 wine of the year in 2011, deservedly so. Still a wine of transcendent beauty.
