    December 25, 2015 - Had this bottle with a Tomahawk steak at Ruth's Chris. This bottle was Awesome ! Still big with a long finish. I think it still has another 2-3 years to go.

    May 19, 2014 - Better than last time with ripe black cherry and chocolate notes, long finish, smooth tannins.

    February 22, 2014 - Needs time - still very tightly wound, tannins dominated the first night, despite double decanting, lots of dark fruit and much more rich mouthfeel the second.

    Will easily carry another 5 years or so.
