Drinking really well! Surprised me at how dense it was. Cassis, tobacco, licorice on the nose and good weight on the palate...some Andes mint/dark chocolate notes and blackberry. Acidity and tannins are still strong. No hurry here.

No way I would have ever guessed this was a 99. Would have thought 06...maybe. It is showing a little bit of age, as I guess you would expect. But this bottle has aged very well. At 20 years old, this wine curveball of the night pulled by Jason! One of my favorites of the night. The entry of this wine definitely shows a hint of age, but only a hint. Lots of blackberry, hint of blueberry, cassis, dark baking chocolate. Little bit of graphite, still with nice tannin on the finish which has started to soften and integrate. A lovely wine.
