    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.

    December 12, 2013 - Popped and poured. A little tight initially, but then opened beautifully. Cassis, black cherry, vanilla and spice on the nose and palate. Not thick, but rich, very smooth and velvety texture. The tannins while soft, still show up in the finish. While this was my last bottle, This appears to be still improving. I would not fear holding another 5-10 years.
