April 5, 2014 - Still deep garnet color. Interesting nose of spicy green pepper and blackberry sorbet. A bit of vanilla bean as well. Rich but not heavy palate - saturating and modern in profile. Very nice but could use a bit more flavor interest - a bit of a bruiser. (89)
December 16, 2013 - Sourced from Premier Cru. Had high hopes for this bottle. Corked extracted easily, streaked up by 1/3. Surprisingly deep color. Shy aromas. Initial taste showed a thin and hollow flavor, dominated by tartness. Left the bottle open for around 2 hours, hoping that the wine would gain some weight with air. Alas, not to be. Drinkable, but fruitless.

December 8, 2013 - Nose: graphite and tar, currants
Flavor: Dried cranberry, currant and strawberry
Profile: dry, old world, mildly tannic, oaky
This bottle is perhaps 25-30% past peak, but still in decent shape and enjoyable to drink.

June 28, 2013 - Corked. Now this is just too bad, partly because I've been wanting to taste it, but also because there was an undeniably huge, pretty core of gorgeous fruits just underneath the blanket of TCA. Sigh.
