    September 4, 2018 - Bought 6b for 13/b from a local gourmet grocer seven years ago. Decanted with lighter sediment than I expected. Rich, dark color; fragrant, grapey nose; body ok but weaker than the color and nose suggested over a one-hour meal of sausage pizza. Doubt that more time will improve it, and will try again. Stored horizontally in a cool, dark basement since purchase. My evaluation: I've stopped giving scores on a "100-point scale" as I've become less convinced that they can be meaningful to others. I use a 4-category scale (perhaps with +/-)--not including flawed--which runs outstanding/notable/drinkable/poor. I considered this notable when considering quality, age, and price.

    September 22, 2015 - Medium full body. Some bricking on the rim. Dark fruit flavors. A bit extracted, but good acidity. Mediums tannins. Good quality for the price.
