A surprise find in the cellar yesterday, as I believed all had been consumed: certainly, the last bottle about four years ago seemed OTH in a way that I would have rushed any remaining bottles into the Queue. Excellent bottle, especially compared to my expectations: roasted plums, coffee, beef boullion, chocolate and a hint of soy sauce. Seductively soft at first with silky tannins and low acid, but both show in time. Could cruise here for a few years, but that soy element in combo with the low acid has me worried and I would drink remaining bottles sooner than later if I had them.
My wine shopping and I have never had a problem. Just a perpetual race between the bankruptcy court and Hell.--Rogov
