    January 20, 2014 - Still going strong. No change from earlier note. Well into its window, with perhaps a few years to go.

    January 1, 2013 - The wine that salvaged a night of disappointing tasting. A terrific wine that is at the end of its drinking window. You can hold, but it is not getting better in my view. Better to drink now.

    Medium yellow, green tinge; huge ripe pineapple nose- you have to love pineapple to drink this "early"- after 3 hrs the pine apple was almost gone- replaced by hazelnuts, sweet dough, lime, and light allspice aroma's; big body through out the evening- very forward,did not seem completely knit together; very full body,smooth,rich creme brulee type of finish; very long, very sl hot at the end.
    I'd guess this bottle had 5-10 yrs of life left.

    May 15, 2011 - Solid Wine. Got a bit tired faster then I expected and showed a bit more ethanol characteristics as well. Very standard Aubert type of wine, fat, a bit buttery, with some spice and gobs of fruit. This didnt quite hold up to my expectations compared to other Auberts

    February 11, 2011 - Based on some recent CT notes I was expecting this to be quite old and possibly over the hill. This bottle was certainly not. Straw colored, nice inviting nose. A big wine with a long mineral finish. A bit of bitterness in the finish that resolved as it opened up. If I had to complain I would say that there was a touch of unabsorbed oak here that detracts -- but otherwise excellent. I'll open my last bottle in the next year or two. No rush - at least for my bottles. (Stored at 57 degrees its entire life)
