Drank this last night, 3 years after recommended 'hold to' date. Still a beautiful, deep purple wine, long legs. Strong blueberry/blackberry notes fill your mouth, long smooth finish. We decanted it about 1 hour before drinking. Had reserved a small amount of non-decanted wine and agreed decanting definitely improved. Opened the nose and made the flavors more accessible
I drank the last one last week, certainly better this time around, I believe the others were stored incorrectly before I purchased them....anyway a nice end to that vintage of RBlock. I would say drink'em if you got 'em!
