June 21, 2014 - PnD let air for 30 minutes. Big ripe black fruit flavours. Well balanced with oak nicely integrated. Very ripe initially but enough acidity to keep it all in check. Great with grilled rib eye. A touch better than the 2006 Pentad.
February 8, 2014 - Disappointing. Dark dark red; pleasant nose of plums and cassis; palate - overextracted, sweet, monotonic, too ripe. Drinkable when chilled a bit.

September 26, 2013 - A great wine. Wish I had more of them.
September 16, 2013 - Popped, left open at the table for about 30 minutes then drank the first 1/2 of the bottle tonight.
We liked this wine but both of us thought it could have been better. There was a sense of being watered back is the best way to describe it. The richness and flavors were all there that we love but in a faded way that was difficult to pin down. We really enjoyed this wine but there was a sense it might have/could have been better. Will try the second 1/2 of the bottle tomorrow to see if it fills out. We both hope it does.
Day 2 was much better. Filled out just enough and was a very nice wine showing good fruit and just the right balance and acidity to pair well with our meal.
Would buy again.
