    June 8, 2014 - This bottle not up to previous. Maybe time to drink up.

    October 20, 2013 - Cherry, cedarbox, Tabacco leaf, very nice! Good freshness - quite youthful & should still be good for few years

    August 30, 2013 - Dark and lush. Blueberry,coffee, chocolate, and even a trace of pepper and vanilla. Still drinking young as it continued to open until finished.

    February 21, 2013 - Still some unresolved tannins. Rich full-bodied. Needs an hour decanter time.
