Intense blackberry and cherry, with hints of currant. Toasted oak and sweet tobacco too. Roses and other flowers, such as lilacs. Full-bodied, with masses of tannins yet incredibly long and seductive... Wine Spectator

12 years didn't do anything to this wine. For a hot vintage, theres a lot of freshness, with high tannins to balance. Dark and brooding. This wine hasn't even hit the peak yet and will live on for 20 - 30 years.

Silky, soft, vibrant fruit. Absolutely delicious.

This fabulous wine reminds me why we simply cannot create the same terroir flavor profile in California. Cedar, incense, saddle leather - none in over abundance, but all perfectly balanced. It's like the symmetry of a beautiful woman's face. This tremendous effort will pair well with almost any red meat.

Still bright and rich no signs of slowing. Just a hint of Brett, but in a good way.

Good complexity showing notes of evolution. Well balanced with firm but delicate tannins. Medium length and still vivid acidity
