November 30, 2014 - Simply stunning. Big, bold, dark fruits. Long, subtle, round. Great with food and afterwards.

February 22, 2014 - Bit burnt flavor. Tannins still very sharp for 13 yrs!! This actually maybe still early! Decent structure and fruit.

August 11, 2013 - Decanted, but showing fairly well out of the gate with further improvement over the next 2 hours+. This bottle is from a parcel at WineCommune that other people reported cooked bottles from. I don't have much experience with aged Sangio wines to know whether this was underperforming but this was not spoiled. Aromas of wild berries along with stale nuts sitting out in a musty dive bar. Lots of leather, cherries, marionberry, cigar box, plum, and peat with fully integrated tannins and a lengthy if relatively straightforward finish. This deserved a better meal than it was served with.
August 7, 2013 - Depth. That's the first thought I had, other than "damn, this is good." Nothing else came to mind, then the macerated cherries with leather undertones rolled in, and later, a good wave of tannin tied it all together. Really nice wine, this is good now and entering a drinking window but I'll wait another couple years for my next one. Stand up in advance, fair amount of sediment.
