    January 7, 2013 - PnP from perfectly stored bottle from a case purchase. Initially great aromas of red fruits and even perfumed rose flowers. Yes some wood on the nose but sweet oak aroma ( very very nice). Medium body now and is a lot less dark than 3 years ago. Very disappointed in that 60 mins later the aromatics decreased maybe 50%. On the palate the beautiful Oakville fruit is losing its fight with the oak, alcohol and tannins vs. years ago. Short finish w drying tannins. Very disappointed from where this was years ago. Has moved from a wine that you must take another sip to one that is a challenge to sip again with the alcohol and drying tannins and not balance with sweet fruit. Hope it’s an off bottle as I have plenty of the 2007 in the cellar too. Will report back in when drinking w a nice steak. Last reviewed in Dec 2011 and was much better (92)
