    Tasted by Ernoid on 2/11/2012 & rated 96 points: Had it along with a vertical of 2000, 88, 82 and 86. This was the most impressive of them all despite having decanted the 2000 for more than 2 hrs. 88 was number two on my list, while the 82 and 86 were flattening pretty quick. Perhaps the 2000 was simply too young. 90 was complex and fullest in body if thats your style. (1713 views)

    Full, deep red. Knockout smoky nose of cedar, leather, earth, truffle and game. Then rather tightly coiled and far less pliant than the nose would suggest. Strong acids contribute to this wine rather powerful structure. But I don't find the flesh shown by the best wines from this vintage. Finishes quite firm, youthfully backward and persistent. Still needs considerable bottle aging, but will this ever be truly satisfying? Drink 2010 to 2025.
