I had a glass, or two, of this last night and I would say that it has improved from the TN above. It still possesses many of the same characteristics, but I found it to be very balanced throughout, with a very good finish. It seems to be in its sweet spot right now.

I opened another bottle last weekend in Phoenix with friends, tasted from bordeax glasses, and it seemed more aligned with gigabit's opinion. It was loosely paired with bacon-wrapped scallops done over the bbq grill. I would have given that last bottle a 93. I wonder if there's some bottle variation or maybe the larger glasses? Odd that it's from the same batch. If they've just hit their sweet spot now, I think the last two will bite it during Thanksgiving. Wink
