Penultimate bottle from a case of 12, bottle variation is crazy. Where the last was quite mature, this seemed just bottled, almost parallel to the ‘07 open beside it. Dry and laden with dark chocolate, black currant and baking spice. Had a Bordeaux vibe the ‘07 didn’t. Beautiful.

Almost 2 yrs ago I wrote: "Half way through a case and the romance deepens. Giant scorched earth and oiled leather nose. Epic battle of extracted dark-red fruit sweetness and a light juicy acidity. All in a smooth-as-silk package. Ageing so gracefully, 10+ years from peaking." After last night I'll add: probably peaked after 2 hr decant, no need to wait but this has the tannins and pure extracted fruit to take it at least 10 more years.

This is great. Darker than the 02 caymus but longer finish, more intense, subtle secondary flavors coming out and a amazing wine
