From a leaking bottle still great . Gamey animal notes with red and black fruits minerals spice and some tannins . A old school master piece!

What a bottle of wine...this really tells a story....Emily and I noticed the wine change flavours at least 4 times over the 2 hours we've been drinking it.....prunes/figs, hint of chocolate.....light spice and definite blackberry taste.....absolutely fabulous!!!

Finally uncoiling a bit. Still tight as can be, but better than a bottle from a year ago.

With Higgins cassoulet so delicious. Pork, wine, Higgins... It's a Portland thing. Gonna lock this in the cellar for 5 more years after today.
