April 8, 2017 - Big mouth feel with a long finish. This paired well with our red sauce with meatballs and sausag.

March 1, 2017 - Tannins, dry dark fruit, earthy undertones, leathery. Drink now, likely a bit past it's prime.

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.
