December 17, 2016 - Drinking really well now, and could still improve a bit. Loads of chocolate, dark fruit, and a little chalk.

December 9, 2016 - Birthday wine and it went pretty fast. What I had was excellent...smooth delivery. Decanted 30 minutes, necessitated by problems removing cork.

August 1, 2016 - Accessed this bottle approx. eighty-five days ago with a Coravin. Delicious red and black fruit from the Grenache and Syrah respectively with some nice spice notes on the finish. My rating is based on the initial tasting. I opened the bottle today to finish it off to find that the wine had changed pretty drastically. The fruit that had been so present before was gone leaving some earth, and spice and finished with bitter notes that were less than pleasant. Obviously the Coravin had not preserved the wine all that well. It hadn't completely come apart but it was definitely on a downward slide. My results with Coravin have been somewhat mixed with results ranging from no change over eight to ten months after accessing to noticeable change after as little as two to three months. My feeling is that the Coravin should only be used for a couple of month extension just to be safe.1 person found this helpful Comment
