Campho Phenique. Better on the palate than the nose.

Getting in shape for next week with the crew. Notes and rating to follow. @Ron R @Mike Rowe @David A Lentine @Martin G Rivard Edit; The nose on this is that of a first growth Bordeaux. Dusty red berries and spice. The palate is velvety, however the tannins are still there, giving this enough structure to keep aging. Stewed plums, baking spices, cedar wood, hints of oak, eucalyptus, earth, Nat Sherman tobacco. This just screams old world; but with a new world twist.

Nice nose with Cola, wood, vanilla same on the pallet. Not a ton of structure or balance and finish is rapid.

Longer the week gets, the earlier in the day I open a bottle! Still not up to par with the 04

A little sweet to my palate, but all the right moves for this style.

First time for this one. Lots of details & even a little funk. Too ripe and too much oak for me, but impressive none the less. @ Mulvaney's B&L
