    April 5, 2016 - Bordeaux (John's house): Bought from Winebid. Slight oxidiation, tart finish. Still, some nice acidity and tangyness. Round butterscotch, a bit of fruit left. This either impoved with a little time or I warmed up to it. Hits that exceptional level to me. Clearly a couple years in decline.

    April 1, 2016 - No Fools Today (Minneapolis): Really solid overall. Slight oxidation but doesn't distract the oak, lemon oil, vanilla and pear. Medium plus finish. Drink now.

    May 27, 2012 - Bright yellow gold this faithfully stored specimen delivered with fresh peach and floral aromas and flavors on a minerally alcoholic bed.

    January 2, 2012 - Aromas of orange, orange peel and lemon peel with some summer flowers and still spice from new oak. Big, fat fruit comes through on the palate with plenty of spice. Still quite alive at over a decade, although probably a bit shorter than it was a few years back. Quite enjoyable, but I really couldn't imagine ever mistaking this for Grand Cru Burgundy.
