Bottle Nos. 03857, 03864

"Rich, opulent and wonderfully complex spice and rich, earthy, somewhat animale aromas followed by very long, intense, robust yet classy and sleek, velvety flavors. Classy, gorgeously complex and impressive as hell with a touch of finishing muscle and fantastic length. A flat out great example of the vineyard and one this is drinking perfectly now though well stored bottles will continue to hold without any problem. Consistent notes save for one bottle that was clearly not what it should have been, displaying a very evolved nose and tiring flavors. Drink Now." Burghound, 94 pts. 01/04
