    January 17, 2016 - Needed 45 mins in the glass. Then lovely. A bit of barnyard on the nose, but more warm than off putting. Great fruit, subtle earthiness. Drink over next 3-5 yrs I think.

    December 25, 2015 - Still elegant but transitioning from a younger vibrant wine to a more mature one. Took a couple of hours to open up. Lovely cherry, vanilla, and earthy notes.

    October 29, 2015 - Similar to previosu bottle. Left it breathing for 2 hours. Very subtle nose and just a bit alcoholic. Palate was really good for me, elegant, light on its feet and almost fresh. It was the last flight out of 9 and my palate was probably a bit tired by then.

    October 6, 2015 - When I wrote about this wine on 7/14 I dismissed it as an unremarkable effort. But I'm here to eat some crow. Tonight's bottle- a mere 15 months later- is superb--delicious and very well integrated.
