March 29, 2014 - Dinner with the Keegan's (Our house): 3rd bottle with dinner and my number 1. Tied for first with the 08 Oreno. To me this had the most fruit with a nice peppery and spicy finish. A little fuller and less acidic as well especially compared to the bordeaux. Really really good (as always).

January 7, 2014 - Drinking well right now. Aeration brought out a bit more bouquet but no real change in taste. Classic bordeaux taste and smell. Have to say that I will drink the other two bottles in our cellar soon because I am concerned this wine has flattened, and might start falling off. Still, quite tasty.
