This was opened upon arrival at the Le Germain Hotel in Toronto in celebration of our 25th Anniversary. We did not have to time to decant, so drank most when we returned after a fabulous dinner at Canoe (see post below). This may have not been a good idea, as by that time, we had Perrier Jouet, martinis and the bottle highlighted in the next post!
That said, Piobaire was indeed correct. The RWT does have epic potential. The fruit is absolutely first class and the wine tastes wonderful, but I could not help thinking as I was drinking that some of the 'soul', the depth, was missing in favour of the alcohol. No razor blades, no bitterness, it was smooth, excellent wine. But some serious aging will turn this from excellent to stunning, I think. 91/100
