Good god. Showing superbly. Tertiary leather notes and white pepper on the nose. These carry thru to the palate. Great core of ripe black fruits, baked bread and caramel. This is a hold or consume. Great looking friends (Kristen and Kyle) in the background.

Carpe Diem 3 Year Anniversary Wine #3 Cab based blend, aged so gracefully. Great balance and weight on the palate.

Evolved nicely with hints of cassis, cherry and leather with complex flavours of sweet cherry, dark fruits and tar. Medium bodied and a nice long finish.

1997. Buddy expected me to decant it which I usually do for a Italian but to Gudo Al Tasso I did not and will not, because it keeps changing and gives u diff sensations. Started out like a carmenere and then merlot and then a syrah. 3 hours later nose turned explosive like a USA fat wine and tannin went up too. Its acidity tells Italy. Buy.

1997 Wow! Initially tight and slightly sour. Needed to warm up a bit from the cool temp of the wine fridge. Decanted and wonderful after an hour and half. Elegant and classic as an Armani Suit. Raspberries, cherries, long silky finish.

Still has structure. Tannins are definitely present. Boysenberry and red fruit are still delicious. No where the "Late" RP has noted. Delicious!
