Agree with others that state this is heading south, though must admit the two guys I drank it with seemed to really enjoy it. I still thought it was good, just not as vibrant as a couple years ago. The fruit is definitely fading, but there are other things going on that still make this enjoyable. I'd recommend drinking in the next 12 months or so (unless you really dig heavily matured wines, in which case you probably have more time on this one).
At long last I get to open this: sour cherry and deep cedar notes, took many hours to open up; back end rounded and soft; can't see how this could improve; bring remaining bottles out of storage this year
