    September 15, 2014 - Another night with the 1970, and if anything, even better than before.

    July 19, 2014 - Another beautiful bottle. Even silkier and more open fruit than the last. Loads of sweet cherry, leather and sultry texture on the palate. Drinking just fine. No rush.

    January 1, 2014 - The fruit and tannins have subsided and the wine has mellowed. It is amazingly smooth and delicate - showing the characteristics of age in a pleasing way. Usually, I am not a fan of really old wine, but this was a very graceful exception.
