February 21, 2016 - Slow ox for 3 hours. Then 2 hours in the decanter. Was really happy with this. Color shows a bit of bricking. Nose has some real depth to it, with some herbal notes and lavender. Palate was very nice and both fruit and secondary flavors abounded. Finish left a little to be desired - not that it was short, just a bit harsh.
Glad to see how this did with some cellar time. And I think it has the stuffing to do just fine with another few years laying down.
