2000 texture of ripeness, very muted nose, very dark in color but,.... very tart and bad herbal, almost corky but no nose of cork......maybe it was a bad bottle, maybe it was all the Halls I've been sucking on all day.... from a 375 mL and met the bottom of the drain... I have one more half bottle, I'll try that just to make sure ....

Second bottle was much more like it! Definitely evolved but the ripeness is there, though mildly subsided. It gives the wine a serious sense. Enjoyable as a wine but WAYYY to evolved for an 00. Fortunately this was my last bottle that I picked up a few months ago. I suspect less than stellar storage conditions for these babies, combined with the 375ml format.

Didn't buy any of these dudes en primuer so can't comment. So far, I haven't had any 00 that wasn't killer. WW
