    August 14, 2017 - Took a couple of hours to open up but very nice when it did. Nice red fruit and oak complexity. Usually secondary gravy notes starting to show. No rush.

    June 11, 2017 - Quite oaky, cherries, some sweetness and leather. Well balanced and fairly long. Best after an hour or so in a decanter. Very good indeed with lasagna.
    Day 2 - very well integrated, with none of the components mentioned being too dominant. Suggests more cellaring or a longer decant.
