The reason we hold onto these wines - shared to me during dinner service by a generous guest - pine needles, incense, tobacco and ripe dark fruit. Better than many-a-first growth I’ve had. Showstopper. Unforgettable from this 100 PT vintage. @riverhouseodettes

Last week was a combo of 4th Friday and Open That Bottle Night on back to back nights. Needless to say, the lineup between both days was full of heavy hitters, so I’m only posting standout bottles. This was slow oxed for a few hours before the event. I was fortunate to try this a couple times throughout the evening. Monster stuff that is only getting better. Aromatics of dark cocoa, mocha, bayleaf, cedar, currant, underripe blackberries and raspberries. Built like a tank on the palate...big structure sporting notes of leather, herbs de Provence, grilled black cherries, plum, mulberries, graphite, and a tannic finish. If you can decant for half a day, go for it. Otherwise, hold on and enjoy the fireworks in 5-7yrs. Thanks for bringing @Jid R .

Relatively plush, nice fruits, cedar, hints of blossoms. Good amount of fruits and fine tannins. My sense is more complexity is still to come but drinking nicely.

Surprisingly elegant for the amount of fruit and density in the nose and the palate. Medium/medium+ body...tannin are fine and seem fairly resolved where that might smooth over the edges of firmer tannin.
