many said this was more "Old World" than the 2012...maybe, but Saint Emilion like delivery if so

Amazing. So balanced, round, silky, and just all around class. Quite a unique ending - graphite, blood, super long. No more than med bodied.

My third Almaviva vintage and another bullseye. This one takes a bit longer to open up than the ‘14 and is a little sweeter and fruitier than the ‘09. Very smooth from the get go and fruit develops over the first hour and continues to come to life. Aromas of blackberry, spice and liquorice with faint caramel and vanilla. On day two the wine has really hit its stride (shame there’s only a glass left). Wonderful addition of pipe tobacco, leather and violet. Dark and opulent, so far Almaviva can do no wrong. Onwards to ‘15 which is a 100 pointer.

Pretty amazing - picked this up way below value indicated here (mismarked pricing maybe?) my good luck - as full and enjoyable as described in the notes - drinking fantastically now, but would definitely cellar well.
