    August 8, 2017 - The wine has a beautiful saturated purple appearance and does not look a decade or so old.

    The nose surprisingly unevolved, but gives off plenty of classic aromas of black fruit, vanilla , spice and some tobacco.

    Full bodied with medium plus tannin and medium acidity. Palate is lush and still has plenty of fruit characteristics. Very elegant with a long finish.

    This wine appears to have at least another 10-15 years of life ahead of it in a cold cellar.

    May 27, 2017 - This wine was very special. Drank along side the 07 and this was a clear winner. Wine experiences like this don't come often, but when they do it's important to embrace them!

    January 30, 2016 - Still outstanding. Dark cherry and vanilla permeate the total package. Paired with seared filet mignon, Brussels sprouts, and mashed potatoes. Went beautifully together.
