Went back to 04 and couldn't find any sign of a post on this booger. Had it whilst being overwhelmed by the Olympic Opening Cerimonials. The wine was almost as good as the visuals. Not a sign of tannins or downsliding on this baby and the drinking window is open. Super juice that would even please the good Dr. No mention of grapes, alcohol or any info but guessing its' Cab, merlot, and cab fraank. Alc in the mid 13s'. 4&1/2 lapper finish so rate tis hummer 92/90. 45 by the box. WW

Opened this for lunch yesterday as I've cut the sabbatical a tad short. Nose has become more focused and the complexity hits the palate quickly. Lush soft tannins, deep red fruits, cherries and plums, lovely sweet spices and a killer finish. This bottling needs to be kicked up to a solid 93/92. ATTOIG. WW
