Nice acidity and smooth leathery goodness. A very enjoyable wine — 13 days ago
Liked it with and without food, had a bit of a bite. S actually said he liked it (he tried it on the second day it was open) — 2 months ago
Needs to air a bit but nice nose and finish — 4 months ago
Still solid. Nice notes of blackberry, dark chocolate, a little leather. Very pleasant. — 16 days ago
one of the most memorable bottles of old bordeaux i’ve had. 36 years old and in a perfect drinking window. the leather, tobacco leaf, cigar box, tannin is all light and delicate at this point. hard to describe in words but just a beautiful bottle, really a pleasure to drink. — 4 months ago
In a wonderful place. Nose of spice and resin, pine needles, cherries, herbs, dried hay, citrus rind and more. This has gotten so much better since its awkward youth. Palate is fresh and linear with terrific acids and lean, fresh cherry fruit. Lovely length and purity. Air will improve but what an effort in a hard vintage. — 18 days ago
Needed to try one early, opened on Monday, poured a glass then immediately recorked the bottle. Decanted 4 hours the following day, obviously still 20 years too early, no amount of air makes up for bottle age.
Spectator # 1 for the year plus a couple professionals gave it 💯 points.
Nice to see Delectable is as unreliable now as it was 5 years ago, hence the reason never to pay for this app. — 2 months ago
