Community Tasting Notes 7
January 28, 2014 - Very good. Softened beautifully over several days and developed real character. Tannins strong but resolving.

July 7, 2008 - Very tight upon opening....sour and tannic. Completely changed after 90 minutes in the decanter. Black cherries with some vanilla creaminess. A little heavy on the oak. Long finish. Still has years left in the bottle.
