    July 17, 2016 - This is still drinking quite young, though it has come together considerably since its youth. There are still some unfortunate sharp edges, but those were mostly gone by the second night. Maybe I'll keep my 2 remaining bottles for another few years before opening. It's crazy that a wine this cheap could go this long.

    June 25, 2016 - Past its prime.

    December 5, 2015 - Think this is still holding up well. Full bodied, smooth. Definitely need to decant this, moderate level of sediment.

    July 3, 2015 - Not a good bottle: Port-like, but not in a particularly good way. Too old, I'm thinking.

    June 4, 2015 - Popper and poured at room temp - would describe it as a hot mess. Actually couldn't finish it since wasn't good. Day 2 tasted much better. Maybe keep holding? I don't know. Puzzling wine - this is my last bottle and happy to be done with it.
