Magnum, good color in the glass, fully resolved but drinking well with medium finish — 2 months ago
Way too young… but fully enjoyable at this stage. Not much nose… green apple and pear… wonderful balance! Wondering where this will go , but a joy with halibut and salmon in a state where laws make drinking problematic. Assume this will close up like a sea turtle, but lots of pleasure already. Look for a competitive price… but stock up. — 17 days ago
1st bottle of 2023 and had to open something fun.
1 hour decant(fine/cloudy sediment). A fabulous reddish tawny color. On the nose: Amazing notes of worn leather, cigar smoke, floral, some sweet cherry/plum, wet funky forest floor, white pepper. Taste: kaboom! Smooth, seemless, brilliant wine with cherry/raspberry, leather, tobacco, smokey, earthy, pencil shavings and velvety soft tannins lead to a LONG finish. YUM!! What a treat to start the new year. — 25 days ago
