    An aging beauty. This bottle was more vibrant than the last two we've had, and was what one envisioned for this wine over the last 10 years. Ethereal on the nose - cherry, rosewater, light Asian spice, and a hint of orange peel. Really vibrant. In the mouth, the fruit is fading though. Not many secondary flavors: just muted cherries and earth that was best at hours 2-4 after opening. The nose remains strong and beautiful. This does not have ten more years, but it's at its aging best right now. I've said it before, but I wish Mark V. was still getting White Rose fruit, because the result is just beautiful. (94 pts.)

This has also showed spectacularly for me on several occasions. I agree with drinking window of <5-10 years from now.
