New Years eve at Kevin and Vicki's 2014: 1 hour decant. Quite a lot of menthol/eucalyptus on the nose. I rather enjoyed this initially but it seemed to build and towards the end, I wasn't getting anything else on the nose except eucalyptus. The palate is rich with soft, deep, dark cocoa.
New Years Eve Celebration (Rocknroller's (Kevin & Vicki's Place)): Very dark purple color. Decanted 1 hr and slow-O 1 hr. Drank 1 glass over 90 minutes. Lots of eucalyptus up front, black fruits, mocha, tar and some savory notes. The palate is layered and concentrated with lush black fruits, creme de cassis, blackberry, menthol, mocha, lots of glycerin, tar, a little roasted game with silky tannins. Some evolution since a year ago. 92+pts.
