13’ Realm Bard. The nose sell it (per usual)Very enjoyable. Just so hard after enjoying so many 2012’s, which to me is that much more memorable. -at Bali Steak & Seafood Waikiki, Hawaii

Have to spoil @India Okoh for your celebration dinner. Stunning wine!

Deep and dark ruby red and purplish hues. Thick and dark nose, a bit of bark with tons of dark berries, cinnamon, even a bit of herbs and baking spices. Heavy tannins (8/10) and full bodied. Can feel a touch of heat, with layers of cinnamon, vanilla, spiced herbs and black berries. Absolutely delicious. Extracted and voluptuous. Excellent work. This will only get better over time, will wait another 5 years at least for the last bottle. Drink till 2030.
