    April 13, 2013 - Decanted for 2 hours......this wine really opened up and became quite elegant and a favorite at the table with bright red cherry notes, mild asian spices and dried mushrooms. This did not show well out of the bottle, give it some time to open up.

    November 10, 2012 - A predominantly dark fruit nose with notes of black cherry and restrained plum compote with a hint of dried red cherries. The palate continues to be a bit disappointing, with a muddy contrast of muddled fruit and secondaries, where nothing stands out. Not offensive, just a bit boring, the fruit is evaporating, therefore I think it's time to drink up.

    May 10, 2012 - Dinner at The Bristol (The Bristol - Chicago, IL): This falls squarely into the category of austere 1996 Burgundy. The nose was quiet with dark brambly fruit, subtle spice, and wet earth notes. The palate was pretty hard and acidic but did offer up dark fruit, violet tones and a subtle earthiness. Another fickle 1996 Burgundy...hard to tell if/when this one will come around.
