    January 1, 2015 - Delicious bottle with tenderloin on New Years. Slow ox for 4 hours. Beautiful fruit on the nose and palate. Think I would skip the slow-ox next time or at least cut back to an hour. Although delicious not quite on par with earlier bottles of this.

    December 27, 2014 - At the decade mark and I could not resist opening one of my bottles for Christmas. I was not disappointed, nor were my guests. This wine is deep, dark, and full of chocolate, vanilla, and 15 sedimentary layers of herbs and fruit that just kept peeling and revealing over time. The wine still showed so much youth that my other two bottles will have to wait until the 2020s before they see the light of day. Magnificent!

    December 12, 2014 - Less notes than about the bottle earlier this year, but they are consistent. I can add some good bell pepper and leather. Great wine and for many years to come. Always a feast to drink this!

    November 16, 2014 - Wow. What a treat. Two hour slow decant was the only mistake I made opening this as it needed a good 4 hours in my opinion. Halfway through dinner this baby was singing. Beautiful notes of Red and Dark berries, chocolate, vanilla and a bit of tar. Acid and tannins were right on point. This was a great wine, but make no mistake, this has a long life ahead of it and should be cellared for another few years. My second bottle will hibernate for a while.
