    September 2, 2013 - seems at its best now, but will probably remain at this level for at least a couple more years.

    3/5/14, 9:50 AM - how fresh were these. I am looking at buying some from 2009 on sale, and thinking the vintage too warm for my palate..just curious

    3/5/14, 1:53 PM - I'm not sure "fresh" is the best attribute for this wine. It's got an oldness to it that is not flat, but seems eloquent and classic. I think the 09s might be drinkable a little earlier: I'm guessing in 2-3 years. I bought a lot of this, but in the future, would probably not buy more than 3-4 bottles/vintage. But definitely a classic wine.
