    November 25, 2014 - Decanted for two hours. Aromas and flavors of currant, black licorice, cherry compote and smoke. Very nicely filled-out, and a long, detailed finish. Drinking quite well, although the last glass about 4 hours in was the best. Drink or hold 2-4 more years.

    March 8, 2014 - my last bottle of this? sad...

    decanted 1 hour, paired with roasted brussels sprouts, pan-seared filets and sweet potato. meal was ok, wine was marginally better. the showing this time around was much older than 8 years would belie. i would have said 15+ if tasting blind. cherry pipe tobacco, leather, sweet blackberry, a little acid, and fully-integrated tannins. could have been an iffy cork. enjoyable, but not as much as previous bottles. if scoring this bottle, 86-88. i still think "good" bottles of this have lots of life, this just wasn't one of them.

    January 31, 2014 - Notes similar to last except I don't seem to be suffering the same palate fatigue as previous. Beautiful red and black fruits, integrated oak and significant tannin. My last bottle. I'm sure it would have lasted another 5 years easy.
