IIRC, the wine you bought was the XIII, which was a more structured vintage and didn't show secondary characteristics early the way the XII did. The XIII's going to be gorgeous eventually, but it will take longer. Anyway, knowing your palate as well as I think I do, unless something's changed drastically with you the XII is a wine you'd love and the XIII will eventually be one, too.
My wine shopping and I have never had a problem. Just a perpetual race between the bankruptcy court and Hell.--Rogov
