WOTN!!! Truly in a great, great place right! A phenomenal Bordeaux showing everything that I adore: pencil shavings, granite minerality , gorgeously integrated and a 90+ second finish. The only thing missing to make this a perfect 10 is my good friend @Ron R sitting next to me enjoying the bottle that he gifted to Christine & I!! You are a stud my friend! In the spirit of friendship this was shared and enjoyed with a few of my great friends: @Drew feinberg and Bill Wachter. Come to Think of it, I think my friend Brandon may have had a glass of this as well? I’m sure they will all add their own tasting notes shortly. @brandon brandon Im not sure what we traded in order for me to get this bottle but I am 100% certain that you received the short end of the stick!!!!! I’ll make it up to you,

A gorgeous expression of Cabernet Sauvignon, super smooth and open after 5 hours in a decanter. Tannins perfectly melted, lovely grain and structure. This wine, while drinking well at 19 years old, can surely last another couple decades at least. A wine of impeccable finesse.

Enjoyed a taste of this alongside Laurel Glen 92, not trying to compare but both exciting expressions of what they. What a delightful experience.

Extremely young, but after about an hour really started to showcase the nobility of the terroir, oak/intensity/rich but really well balanced.

Dusty and earthy tannins with a drying finish. Fruit is alive and still there, looking to revisit this one in 20 yrs.

Everything you except. Could nose this for hours. Depth, finesse, harmony. Probably at its apogee but will stay there for many years to come.

1998, A true legendary wine, it needs still time to show its full quality and character. Tasted double blind. I guessed it was a Pauillac from early 2000s but did not think it was such an iconic wine :-) Lovely garnet color, complex nose, yet a bit tight, full of black current, coffee, dry leaves, mineral and iron, full body, rich layered, complex, tannins are velvety and smooth after 2 hours. And the finish was long. My score 93, drink to 2026. Would love revisit in 5 years.

Super concentrated, lots of baby fat, even after being open 48 hours was just opening.
