    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.

    April 21, 2007 - Dallas Offline - April 2007 (MikeB's house in North Dallas, TX): WIML87-88,NOWA,NOWS

    Tasted April 21, 2007 at an offline. Tasted from a Spiegelau Authentus Magnum glass. Dark garnet color in the glass, clear hue throughout. Nose of black licorice, black currants and white pepper. Chewy red currants on the palate followed by some red berries. Light acidity, medium tannins, light to medium body. Drink over the short term.
