    December 20, 2021 - I got this 10 years ago, then forgot about it until recently. The cork crumbled badly - my fault for treating it like a younger bottle - so I've been constantly dodging cork bits while drinking this (even with a filter!). The color seems to be just starting to brick, with thin edges. A nose of cedar, rum, and slightly overbaked strawberry pie. Medium bodied, very dirty cranberries, sage and rosemary, a trace of cherries, rustic tannins, smoke and leather, and a really nice, long dry finish. Very enjoyable and worth the wait.

    July 28, 2021 - Wow. This has gone from bruiser to elegant. No sign of any fading but why wait it's in a perfect drinking window.

    December 22, 2020 - Extremely well-balanced at this stage with a gorgeous fruit profile of mixed red and black in harmony. Extra years in the cellar really paid off for this wine. I would drink this over the next few years but don't hold it too long. Found it very approachable with or without food.
