Still going strong with more time to spare. Very little tannins, fruit forward, jammy. What a treat for Christmas Eve.

Very nice. Still plenty of aging potential. Drank it over a few weeks using Coravin. Love this stuff

Very nice but could still use some more aging time. Fruit not quite integrated. A little disjointed for my taste compared to other aged Saxum. A little evervescent. I only decanted for maybe 1 hour. Still enjoyed it though. This is the youngest Saxum I have consumed.

Just plain ole amazing. Improved after 90 minute decant, If you don't like this then go back to buying wine in the grocery store and save these for me.

I would say this is at peak drinking window. Very smooth, fully integrated tannins. It did improve with a 1 hour decant. I would drink now.

Improved after 2 hour decant. Well balanced. Amazing long finish. Several years to go on this one IMO.

Wow! What an improvement over the past 2 and a 1/2 years. Much more integrated with more cooked fruit flavors along with some vibrant jammy red fruits. Definitely has a lot more time. I decanted for an hour.

Better than the first one I tried. I guess barnyard is an acquired taste.

I found this moderatley more complex and balance since my last bottle. After 1 hour decant it was really nice. 2 years has improved this wine. I really enjoyed it.

I agree with emplee500's assessment entirely. Unfortunately I have 2 left from Zachy's wine auction. Maybe I'll get lucky.

I did not get the "Horsey" notes that the other reviewer mentions although I know exactly what that is as I have had french wines with those flavors. I enjoyed this wine.

This was a fantastic port. It was a little hot on opening but mellowed out over a week. It was opened for a party then was gassed. I had a glass every night for a week and each one was amazing. Can't wait to open the next one.

Very good. Oak is prominent. Should get better with more time and become more integrated. Great price.

A little too sweet for me with PnP. It probably needs more time to integrate. I usually don't drink wines this young, so it may be a perspective issue. But I still enjoyed it.

Fantastic after 2 hour decant. Definite efervescent on opening. I shook this vigorously several times over a couple of hours and it paid off and with a little patience it was fantastic. Full bodied, well balanced but a little short on the finish; wishing the flavors would last forever. Very nice spice on the palate. Very enjoyable.
