September 27, 2014 - Some debate on the night as to whether or not it was closed or simply over the hill and lacking complexity. I thought over the hill, others disagreed. At this point, a competent CdP, though perhaps more time in a decanter will change that.
September 16, 2014 - Another flawed bottle.

September 1, 2014 - Sweet fruit, mineral, earth and a hint of game. Really tasty. But need to drink soon as the weight of the wine is getting lighter.

August 17, 2014 - Was definitely oxidized. Tasted like bad port. Very disappointing. Has been in a 55 degree cellar since release. However, pulled a couple of months ago and kept at the bottom of an interior closet in the house. An unusually warm August for us (Washington state) may have been warm enough to impact. Will try one of the last 2 bottle's straight from the cellar soon to compare.
