    November 26, 2016 - A little pruny stewed fruit taste.

    June 29, 2016 - Purchased quite a few on release and forgot I still had one. Certainly holding well but really has not developed much. Still showing ripe black fruits with somewhat stern tannins. It has softened up over the years but is not melding into what I want from a well aged bottle of cabernet blend. More like persists rather than gaining with age.

    May 7, 2016 - These wines have never shown well for me despite pristine storage conditions. Not quite past their prime yet showing few signs of what they once were. Every time I open a bottle I hope to see a glimmer of excitement only to find disappointment.

    April 11, 2015 - As expected due to 24 years of slumber this looked and tasted disjointed. After a four hour decant the dark and deep fruit folded back in, quite common for Dalla valle 1990 thru 1993. Prunes gave way to dark currant, some tannins and acid back bone evident. Tobacco leaf, cigar box, mushroom and earth. Still a great wine. Drink now thru 2022
