    December 29, 2018 - Holding strong. This was the best showing I've had so far. Decanted for two hours. Never really fell off over three hour drinking window. Shared with many friends over Christmas Eve. Everyone commented on how nuanced the flavors were. Delicious!

    December 26, 2018 - Color just as pretty as years ago. Fresh nose of violets, blueberry, sage, and chocolate. Medium bodied, plums, black cherries, sweet spices, fully integrated tannins, a bit of tobacco, and a long, long finish. One of Cathy's better efforts, which is saying a lot.

    December 17, 2018 - Second bottle after first was flawed. Decanted, and poured after 15 mins. Nose was not nearly as expressive asthe ‘01, tasted alongside. Palate was single dimensional black fruit. Opened up a bit after an hour, but in my view closed down into a dumb phase...not near thenotes from my earlier bottles. Paired with rib eye and sauteed mushrooms.

    December 17, 2018 - First of two opened tonight. Decanted, and obviously corked from the nose, with the decanted ‘01 to sniff alongside. (Cork broke, but only a bit saturated.)
