    October 28, 2014 - Distinct black licorice, dark fruit and tar(in good way). Drink now, in a very good window. Suspect decanting would have taken off "alcohol" edge( minor"flaw").

    July 14, 2014 - Dark blackish purple in color with a mild but rich aroma of dark fruits with a trace of menthol and vanilla oak. This big wine has mellowed and integrate considerably since I last had this (back in June, 2009) but still managed to retain much of its rich fruitiness. The big alcoholic component is not as pronounced on the palate as it once was, but the aftereffects of its 16% can readily be felt in the head. At this juncture, this wine is in a good place and is drinking extremely well right now with more to offer over the next few years. Its hugh fruity core wrapped in an equally large and silky outer garment is sure to make this a pleasurable and memorable drink.

    January 4, 2014 - Big aussie with lots of dark fruit, but with enough acidity to keep it mildly balanced. Not a bad accompaniment to a movie.
