    December 27, 2014 - Dinner at Tuscan Blu with Mom. I chose not to decant this bottle but I now think it could have used a few hours as it was a bit tight and flat at first. Deep rich color this was a pleasure to drink once it had time to unwind. Must make sure to decant this the next time around. 50+13+13+8.5+8.5=93

    November 22, 2014 - Less concentration and lighter styled than any of the others in this flight. Nice and enjoyable, but I don't see this getting better with more time in the cellar.

    June 27, 2014 - This deep garnet wine was tasted in double-blind fashion, with the bottle kindly being provided to our tasting group by T.R. Although decanted, this wine had minimal aeration yet showed and amazingly intense bouquet of lavender, red fruits, leather and truffles. Full-bodied, freshly acidic, seamlessly alcoholic (13.5%) and with soft residual tannins, this Sperrs carries its complex flavors throughout the middle palate and lengthy finish. An absolutely stunning product from this particular bottle! I am sure that there is substantial bottle variation at this point, but well-cellared bottles deserve serious consideration. Drink now-2020.

    November 3, 2013 - Bottle variation in the BEST possible way! I am working through a case. So far, the bottles have been okay but on the downswing, bricking, tart and a touch flat- but some nice secondary notes. This one was the bees knees- dark and brooding like a grand bussia. Beautiful deep ruby/purple. Youthful but slight hint of age toward the finish. Stunner.
