Birth-year wine opened in celebration of a close friend’s 30th.
The wine finds itself quite mature in its presentation of fruit. Heavily dominated by savory herbs on the nose. Screams of dill and thyme. Curious to know the oak program for this wine in these times. Acid structure is what is keeping this wine alive and maintaining freshness in mouthfeel on the palette. Happy Birthday Mo!

12.9% alc.
Has that old aged Napa/Bordeaux nose that haunts me in my dreams.
On the palate it is a bit less impressive lacking that certain "energy" that would bring it into the old Napa magic category for me.

Haven gone through several bottles of this and found a bit of bottle variation I was very happy with this specific one tonight.

This is generally not a good vintage for William Hill but I've had bottles that showed better than this.

Soft and elegant. Drinking nicely in 2016 though would have been better 10 years ago

Held up well, very drinkable and pleasant, but less complexity than I'd hoped

Nice aged nose resembling old Bdx.
Tired on the palate so you need to be a "wine necrophiliac" (as I am) to truly enjoy it at this point.
Drink up.
