Almost a year has passed since the last note. It's getting better all the time... The nose, especially, is just killer. Good balance, flavor and finish. Getting to WOW. I think it's in its optimal drinking window.
I had this with a cheese plate on 3/10/13. It had a strong, fragrant and alluring bouquet of smoked meat, blackberry, plum, burnt toast, mocha, pepper, licorice and spice aromas. The palate was rich, layered and dry with flavors of blackberry, plum, burnt toast, licorice, pepper spice and chalky minerals. 91+
