    April 26, 2013 - Held onto it too long. Muted aromas. No real finish. Quite drinkable but nothing stands out.

    March 15, 2013 - dry, but I think we enjoyed it?

    November 30, 2012 - Big wine with good balance but very few distinguishing features. Nose of stewed raspberries. Full-flavored beetroot and licorice with no secondary flavors and still quite tannic. Charcoal finish. Enjoyable but not memorable. This wine was filtered (zero sediment after seven years) and I guess the potentially interesting bits were discarded.

    October 13, 2012 - Drink it up. Wouldn't wait in this one. It was good for a one time snag by Seghesio.

    November 2, 2011 - Aromas of dark cassis berries and toasted cedar. Lively flavors of dark cherry, toasted oak, and even a little garden herb. Dry gripping tannins with great acidity on the finish. Drinking great right now and probably for at least four more years.
