A standout to me based on the youthfulness of this bottle shared by @Mike R, thank you. Underbrush and mint on the nose. While still maintaining a bright red color that is still intact. Gave me devious reminders of a Penfolds Grange. Mint, iron and blast of minerals prevailed on the palate. Supremely balanced as some of the pre 97’s in the flight gained tannins.

Undeniably tasty and opulent. The biggest surprise vs expectation in the flight. Showing young and delicious. Shared by @Mike R and it gave @Joe Lucca a mild boner.

Lots of American Oak flavors but was hoping for more of the fruit to come through.

I wish our 2002 was this good. A bit of barnyard with anise and herbs. Layers of black fruit, leather and mocha.
