Very nice dark berry fruit, hints of dark cherry. Some meaty savory notes with violets, spices, and nice acid tannins fully integrated and a nice plush lengthy finish. Was better on night 2.

Drinking an icon. Still young and hard but shows the structure that lets this wine age for many years to come. #bucketlistwine

Topping the night off with the pinnacle. A Grange from 1999, made during an era that it was still produced in a regular bottle and a reasonable price. It was a mature version of the Saint Henry we had earlier that evening. Extreme dense in flavor, powerful and strong oak vanilla notes. Dark fruit soaked in cigar box and oh so smooth. 21 years old. Don’t take too much time drinking it and don’t decant it. It peaks in about 30-60 minutes.
