    February 28, 2012 - Very odd. No bricking at all. A very dark colour (very thick glass making up this bottle). Artificial cork and not many oxidative notes BUT: fruit's dead. Past it, but an interesting demonstration of a wine that is young in some way but too old in others.

    August 27, 2011 - disappointed with the maturity. Drank well, but was expecting great

    January 24, 2010 - drank very well. Good blend of dark fruit and tannins.

    December 23, 2009 - This wine is really dark, even at 10 years of age. On the nose you get sweet fruit and a hint at some chalky Napa tannins. This wine has sweet fruit, but isn't particularly viscous or rich. Kind of angular in nature. A bit astringent.

    April 25, 2009 - rich, almost sweet, stewed black fruits, a little heavy on its feet.
