What do I think: A special treat as a friend brought a coveted bottle from his cellar. 2011 which apparently is still available for $199.00. A multiple of awesomeness from what the experts say!
What the Experts say: Plum, mocha and turned earth highlight the palate of this robust, full-bodied and powerfully broad red wine, tense in firm tannin and a cradling of toasted oak. The acidity helps to balance its heft, leaving a note of lasting freshness on the spicy finish. [Drink now till the mid-’30s.] Score – 92.
