January 29, 2014 - This is a very nice simple wine to enjoy. No issues, nothing over the top, just a solid wine for lunch or dinner.

August 31, 2012 - Similar to Jan 2012 notes. Still alive and doing well, but give it 30+ minutes of open time.

March 5, 2012 - Was expecting more based on other reviews, but this was still a very good bottle of wine. The group tasting this noticed a pleasant cherry nose followed by some blueberry and eucalyptus. Aftertaste had hints of cocoa. Wish that I would've either tried this a couple of years ago or would've given it 30 minutes of decanting.
