Just received 6 half bottles and wanted to try one, forgoing any bad expectations of the 'bottle shock' phenomenon. Opened for 45 minutes before tasted. No decanting. Super deep dark garnet color. A great intense nose of camphor, dusty dark fruits, and cassis. On the palate there is nice dark currant with an amazingly bold cassis, probably the most I have ever encountered in a Cab. Smooth but bold tannins with an evenly balanced acid level give this a great mouth feel. A 60 second aftertaste brings it all home.Happy with the way this showed, especially since my last experience (CLONYC GdL Vertical last September) where the 99 as was so-so, particularly since tonight's was from a half bottle. Glad I got 5 more

Beautiful dark/opaque purple. Nose immediately closed after opening the bottle. It consisted of dark plum, cassis, black cherry, milk chocolate and a bit of smoke. Nice fruit, round tannins and a 30 second finish. 91 pts. Needs a few years in the cellar.

From magnum. This was from a recent winery release.
Medium garnet color. A wonderful pretty nose of sweet vanilla, eucalyptus, creme de cassis, and red fruits dominate in a very sexy showy way. The palate had intense creme de cassis,smooth sweet red fruits and a slightly overdone (to my taste) vanilla component. Some tar and leather. The tannins were completely resolved. A long finish completes this one. This was undeniably GdL. Showed much better than our BV GdL Vertical 18 months back. Peaking but in no danger for a couple of more years.
The recent cellar release and format (magnum) guaranteed a wonderful provenance. The Marilyn Monroe of the evening.
