I had the '05 Jana Cathedral last May and I have to say I was quite disappointed. It was completely unremarkable. I waited a few hours after the initial taste thinking it might need some time but it never opened up. I thought that at 8 years, it would be pretty good, my experience with young Bordeaux type wines is they might be a bit rough and need some more time to smooth out but this was just meh, no complexity, not much flavor. At $50+ a bottle I was totally underwhelmed.
My dogs like me, that is important.

Sounds like it is in a dumb phase.

Agree. Openned a few weeks back at a steakhouse and was underwhelmed. Tight and lacking fruit. I was not a happy camper
