July 21, 2015 - Spectacular wine. Drinking beautifully right now. Smooth, resolved tannins, creamy cherry fruit.
This was the first wine of a 10 wine double blind tasting. All raved about it. Final result was #2 WOTN against the likes of 2000 Lafite Rothschild, 2001 Ornellaia, 2005 Schrader, etc. Amazing result of the night was the #1 WOTN, a $5 ringer from Spain. All participants left the dinner contemplating the sale of their cellars.

December 21, 2014 - Fabulous bottle of wine. Silky smooth, and still very vibrant and alive. Butter-like texture with creamed black fruits that coat the tongue and provided a perfect compliment to the steak we had at Capital Grill. A very special bottle of wine, shared with very special friends, that didn't disappoint. How many times when selecting a wine for the evening do you move past some of your top bottles, thinking "Is this the right night?" Too many for me. Glad I pulled the cork on this one.

July 5, 2014 - decanted for 90 minutes. Very dark. Not showing signs of aging. Nose was strong in the beginning but then wavered. Taste was very flavorful until the end. Maybe has another 3-4 years.

August 19, 2013 - Deep purple color with a bouquet and flavor of cassis and dust, and with a bit of eucalyptus. Very silky with a soft feeling from the dusty tannins. Nicely nuanced with a good finish. Interesting and extremely enjoyable.
