Another positive data point for screw-cap bottles. This wine, at age 6, is just entering its prime. Has an almost St. Julien-like nose of dark currants, blueberries, blackberries, and spicy oak. Chewy, full-bodied texture. Still absolutely fresh as a daisy and getting more complex as it ages. Excellent wine that may be outstanding in another year or two. - HK 2012-08-20
