    April 4, 2015 - drank in a vertical tasting, 99-03. 2003 did not match up. 99 was a surprise hit. 2001 and 2002 were the clear winners with the 01 being slightly better

    February 27, 2015 - Full beefy nose with a hint of motor oil. The palate is.magnificent. With Beef, cinnamon, herbs and Sweet berries. Nice ash to this. Awesome.

    January 17, 2015 - 96 points at least, but maybe higher since it was difficult to focus. Drank for Johnny's 50th birthday at 801 Chophouse. Great steaks all around and lots of festivities, so tough to really pay close attention to the wine. Know it was great, poured from magnum during cocktails into decanter. It was a wow on first taste and just got better. Classic Shafer HS round, full-bodied, great flavors. Glad I have more. No rush on drinking this, still young in profile.
