February 18, 2017 - PNP - Started as a stewed fruit forward and very smooth wine......this wine opened up to a smooth complex wine that paired well with cottage pie. I don't know how much longer this will last but will probably drink my last bottle soon.
Amazing that this inexpensive wine is maturing so gracefully.

October 1, 2016 - Hint of black olive, fully mature and very enjoyable.
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.

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