    July 9, 2015 - Nose of cocoa and maybe some cherry. Mid-body. Cocoa and dusty cherry in the mouth, but dominated by alcohol. Drink up.

    February 20, 2015 - Consumed on my 50th and still alive and kicking. Drink up if you have them, I'm sure this benefitted lasting this long by being in a 6 L format.

    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.

    August 4, 2012 - This wine is still nice to drink, but fading.
