    August 4, 2021 - Decanted at the restaurant...still dark red...muted nose...a little fruit on the back end and taking on Bordeaux qualities...more earthy...short finish...very smooth.

    June 15, 2016 - This wine is drinking phenomenally right now! Ripe blue and black fruits on a very long 60-90 second finish. Thoroughly enjoyed with a bone in NY strip and was the crowd favorite. Alas my last bottle of this beauty!!

    October 20, 2015 - This wine....was like a crazy, wonderful ride - aromatics were so classic, but then take a thing...then another...then another...then another!! GORGEOUS. I have two bottles left, and can't wait to share them with the right people - drink now - it's fantastic!

    December 4, 2013 - This wine is drinking phenomenally well right now. This was the last bottle of the evening after Martinelli and Williams Selyem Pinots and an Arrowood Reserve Cab and everyone at the table agreed it was the highlight of the evening. Popped and poured this bottle and drank over a period of about 1 hour. Flavors of Black raspberry liqueur with a viscosity and minute long finish on the palate. A real stunner, this wine should drink well for another decade.
