BTW, he called the 2010 Saz 18 "an improvement from last year’s release" and the 2011 "very similar to last year's release".
He addresses it, but doesn't give much of a hypothesis as to why the vintages neither ascend nor descend in regards to ratings. You would think it would get better or worse due to oxidation. Maybe this year they bottled the "honey tank."
