    September 9, 2014 - Decanted 4 hours. Needed 10. Way too tannic, and too young. But flavors were bursting from the glass and amazing.

    September 9, 2014 - Half bottle, drank while watching "Karate Kid." Lots of cassis, cedar spice, bitter chocolate. Way too young. Unforgiving like a front kick from Daniel San.

    August 31, 2014 - still tons of berries showing. The tannins have largely faded. After 24hrs in decanter was at its best and I can see why rated so highly. Still far too young for me to fully enjoy. Fear it may be another 15+ years...

    March 4, 2014 - Young, grippy, tannic; some variation in bottle development, this being a youthful one.

    March 4, 2014 - Considerably less developed when poured for the piano tuner Gene Rolfe (who brought over some nice cheeses, including Stilton and Roquefort). It seems that these bottles are bifurcating--some quite overtly grippy and alcholoic, big and with ripe, dryish fruitiness, and others more delveloped, forward, sleek, and giving more immediate pleasure. It's hard not to conclude that the one is of lesser quality than the other. I believe it's not--just needs more time. Drink 2019-2040. Full retail $115/750; wholesale $76/750 ml. Refer to recent notes by this critic and others.
