    January 16, 2013 - Yum. Still going strong and shows no signs of losing steam. Tannins are well integrated and the flavour profile is caught somewhere between youthful berries and bottle eucalyptus, olive, and jalapeno with a nice dose of anise. The green bell pepper profile is still there (for the better, imo) and this wine went very well with a soy/ginger braised chicken stir fry. Nice medium body and not even a hint of jamminess yet after being open an hour. I wish I had another 6 bottles of this to try one every year from now going forward.
