Saturday, December 22, 2012 - After finishing off 4 bottles within the past 2 to 3 years I can say that it has continued constant with little improvements while cellaring, which is not a bad thing, for making allowance in longer cellaring and its eventuality.
With that being said; it definitely has potential growth in lue of continuing smoothness,reaching its final destination of "Velvety" on the palate.
I thoroughly enjoyed this wine, and as I agree with most of its critics; Black Raspberries and graphite, perfumed nose, lush and fruit driven, etc. etc., I was very impressed with its smoothness upon immediate opening. As for me, decanting an hour or two, did not seem to have made any significant changes to take notice.
As for now I am holding on to the last couple bottle and will test again in the next year or two holding with excitement of its potentialities as mentioned.. I will try and update soon there after, God willing.
If you have any enjoy or cellar, either or, its all good. If you have none, well I'm sorry because it is very hard to find, and/if and/when you do, it will cost you a little, for the price is rising as they lay, but worth it...Salute!
