    January 2, 2017 - New Years Eve. Great last bottle of the case. Ready to drink!

    September 25, 2016 - I was a bit concerned this was past its prime, but it was actually quite good, although I suspect it might have been better had I opened it a year or 2 sooner. As others noted, it was remarkably dark for a 17 year old wine. The nose was fruity, though delicate in both aroma and intensity. The wine itself was very smooth with just a hint of tannins. Consumed this with a beef pot roast, and it was a great pairing.

    March 31, 2016 - Really enjoyed this with our chicken marsala. Cellared since release. Decanted. Still quite youthful in color (purplish maroon with just a touch of bricking on the edges). Very dark for a brunello. The floral nose was a bit restrained but present. Still drinking well. Fresh, lovely dark fruits, mineral, spice and earthy undertones. Elegant, reserved - a very cerebral wine. Good acidity. Nice finish. Drink now.

    March 26, 2016 - Past its prime. Not much fruit. Interesting wood and tar notes but just ok
