    January 6, 2017 - Super young but very balanced and bright. Wonderfully lively and fresh.

    January 6, 2017 - Day 1: Slow-ox for three hours, it did not yield. Re-cork and leave in the fridge
    Day 2: Slow-Ox for another 2 hours, it still did not yield.

    5th bottle in the last 2 and half years. Almost identical profile. Leave it for after 2018.

    October 4, 2016 - Magnificent. This will drink better in the next few years. Opened on Friday and drank on and off till Tuesday. By Tuesday, the core was a creamy dark chocolate taste and it was wrapped in flowers, fresh ground pepper and a mouth coating berry flavor. Absolutely heavenly. 94-95
