Tons of jalapeño and tobacco. Took a while for anything to show up behind that.

One of the birth year bottles I opened for my 33rd birthday. It was a true treat to try this alongside an ‘88 Napa (Sterling Diamond Ranch), and while the Sterling outperformed this, it was a generous gift and fun to try.

This gets a rating of NR. Provenance seemed solid and fill was great. I wasn’t familiar with this producer, but it just seemed to never wake up. It wasn’t flawed, or wasn’t terrible, it just seemed like non-descript old Bordeaux. Lots of old fig, watered down herbs, leather and Brett. After I let it sit open in the bottle for an hour, I moved it to a decanter and tried ever so often over the course of the next two hours...didn’t change.
