CVR should be QPR. Stunning for a "second" wine.

Great QPR (if that term applies to a $30+ bottle?).
Very enjoyable at this early point but should have enough stuffing to see age 20+ without letting you down.

Impressive, with a sense of balance even with its overall scale & high abv.

Tonight's tasting: group ranked 1 of 4. Aromas of black pepper and cherry. Nice round rich black fruits. Tasted older and better than the 2011 and nearly as good as its big brother. Yes, 2012 was a great year, but it doesn't hurt that this wine has a great pedigree.

Pandemic means I’m drinking a lot of my treasured reds like this puppy!

A little thin - may have been a bad cork. Still opened up to be enjoyable. 2012 vintage

In a great state. Tannins are very soft, oak is mostly resolved. Easy, rich drinking.
