June 25, 2016 - Splash decant. Followed a 95 Haut Bailly and a 01 Siro Pacenti. My last bottle but alive and kicking. Sweeter fruit than the other two wines, still a fair bit of oak. Lacking about aromatic complexity, concentration and length in direct comparison.

December 1, 2015 - Rose, baking spice and fresh cut oak scent. Black currant, licorice and mineral flavor with energy and pleasing tension from grippy tannins. Paired wonderfully with panko crusted pork chops.

November 21, 2015 - Decanted for about 1-½ hours at this point. Way too much oak, which masks much of the fruit. It tones down a little after more time in the decanter, but still over the top. Too bad...this could have been a very good wine. 82 now, and a big disappointment.
Tried again two days later, and finished it three days later. It was very good both times. The oak was gone, so the fruit and other flavors were well displayed. 90
