May 12, 2013 - Great bouquet... Flat on the tongue though... Hints of certain items, but very unpronounced.
Perhaps a year or two more...

October 22, 2012 - Almost non-descript nose, decent bottle, not sure if it's near its end or just an average bottle of wine.

October 8, 2011 - Popped and poured through a Vinturi. Was hoping for more. Some black fruit, but utterly lacking in complexity or depth. Got this as a gift, so I guess I should not complain. Meh.

July 5, 2011 - Very dark purple color. Nose is blackberry jam, oak, some vanilla, some licorice.
Attack is black fruit, then more oak (too much for me), licorice. Dry. Chewy tannins. Watery mouthfeel - much lighter texture than expected. Very short finish. Not bad, but not all that great. Very basic.
