    May 15, 2016 - Rich, heavy wine with a multiple levels of complexity. Notes of dried fruits, firm tannin structure leaving a very pleasant aftertaste. A great wine to share with friends.

    March 9, 2016 - Bit raisin and slightly bitter finish. Not my favorite of the tasting.

    March 7, 2016 - well done, more Bordeaux style, less attractive, though, than 2007

    January 31, 2016 - Drank this with David Pearson (CEO Opus One) along with the 2000, 2012, 2010. Sat next to him at dinner Friday & Saturday at the Naples winter wine festival. I liked this more actually than the 2012 in several ways. Very very soft, smooth, cherry cola and milk chocolate notes. This was so easy to drink!
