    June 27, 2015 - Took to Underbelly for dinner with friends. The waiter decanted about an hour prior to tasting. The wine was simply fantastic! I believe this wine will still be drinking well for quite some time. If I was scoring would be in the 92-94 range.

    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.
