Really classic in style. Manages a nice bridge between Old World elegance and New World decadence

Opened tonight to celebrate health and happiness! One of our favorite producers and the second 2000 vintage we have had in the last few months. Just beautiful on all levels from start to finish....black fruit evolves a ross the palate and finishes with great acidity and silky tannins. No color progression evident at all but I say pop ‘em if you have them! Cheers!

Not sure if this bottle had been stored improperly but it started out great then took a quick fall in the oxidized department. Those first few moments were bliss though

Exquisite...stewed plums and nutmeg coat the mouth. Just a real pleasure to taste.

Leather, velvety texture (liquid cashmere) and nice long finish of baking spices and raspberry compote. No color progession for a 22 year old wine...intact and rockin’!

For our monthly Carnitas and Cab tradition...raspberry and blackberry fruit subtly peeking through a shroud of leather and cigar box. Fine tannins don’t overwhelm but gives an extended finish. Should be pretty tasty with the meaty, beany goodness that is to come!

Cabernet and Cabernet Franc playing well together. Wonderfully balanced, palate pleasing early 2014 to enjoy now and down and road.

If only I could age this well - balanced, elegant and stately. Dame Helen Mirren in a bottle.
