    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.

I would drink this over the next few years but don't hold it too long. Found it very approachable with or without food.

    November 21, 2020 - A nose of dark fruits and spice, dark purple in color. A medium to full bodied red, with blackberry, tar and licorice, with a spicy but dry finish, still very good. www.winelx.com

This is starting to take on porty notes to me (note: I stored it at 64F, so YMMV). But my wife , who detests port, found it quite nice, so go figure. Better the second night, surprisingly.
