Above is the WS "review" of it. Costco has the 2009 for $23.99 a bottle which is noted above. Tonight we opened a bottle of it alongside of a bottle of the '04 which I've had for five years. Both were @ 55 or 56 degrees when opened. The '09 is a big, alcoholic wine (15%) for the price while the '04 (14.7%) has smoothed out and is just absolutely delicious with real mouth coating depth.

I write this because tomorrow I'll return to Costco and buy a case of the '09 to put away for five or more years. A wonderful wine that today, after five years, drinks even better.

Twenty three ninety nine.
