From the impeccably maintainted cellar of our friend Jim Colbert, this Gloria was still fresh, vibrant, and rich. Briary dark currant fruit and tobacco in both aroma and flavors, well-balanced in texture and finish. Clearly an aged Bordeaux and not one to cellar any longer, but this was absolutely delicious at age 24. - HK 2007-04-15
