This was pretty epic. It needed a nap and it is ready to roll.

I had this vintage of Francia some years ago and I wasn't satisfied with the wine as it appeared very withdrawn, dark and a bit rejecting. Now it slowly opens up, showing more fresh fruit aromas, tar and some floral notes. Lively acidity, nice fruit and polished tannins on the palate. Give it one more decade and this Francia will turn into a real beauty.

Another Francia with a more open mind than the 98 I had some weeks ago. Beautiful nose after quite a bit of time in the decanter and the glass. Not as tannic as I had thought. Give it ten more years.

Nice, just light and fruit is not as concentrated/ripe as I would have suspected/hoped for.

Not much fruit at all. Reminded me of vermouth

Impeccable. Earthy, lilac, hints of cedar, light chocolate. Deep. Rich and constantly changing - lengthy flavor. Tar, spice. Mid-weight on palate. Defined acid and tannin relationship. Great time to open this.

Smooth and full bodied, when fruit, savory herbs, and mushroom flavor. Could drink this all day, any day, and was thrilled to taste at Del Posto five for five
