    January 6, 2015 - Lovely, soft, very easy drinking about an hour out of decanter. Good finish, every so often it works out to age a modestly priced wine. Drink now. After about 2.5. hours is very good indeed.

    December 31, 2014 - Really good. Little brickish in color but wonderful nose and fruit. Extremely well balanced.

    December 27, 2014 - This wine was Wine Spectator's Wine of the Year 2002 with 93 points and a drinking window 2005-2015. I was allocated 2 bottles at the time that I stored in a Eurocave. I opened the first bottle in 2011 and it was flawed. I opened the second one yesterday and there was really nothing special. It opened up after 30 mn in the glass. The nose was pleasant but there was really nothing special. It was medium bodied, some fruit remaining but an after taste showing the wine was past prime. Should I have drunk it when it was released?

    December 26, 2014 - corked, but only slightly. I still drank it and could tell it was a good wine beneath the taint

    December 9, 2014 - Westchester Wine School - Premium Wine Tasting (Bar Lees, Mamaroneck, NY): Drank at WWS tasting. Medium red color, with some browning at the edges. Very generous nose of earth, mushrooms & other tertiary aromas. Though i couldn't find much fruit on the nose, there was sufficient red fruit on the palate. Tannins mostly resolved. Some spice & decent length. Nice wine, though nothing particularly memorable here (tho I did love the nose)>
