    August 7, 2020 - Dark red fruit, with a cedary spicy edge. Some depth and smidge of complexity, but overall pretty straight forward. very fresh and showing no signs of decline.

    June 21, 2020 - Drank from a 1.5 liter bottle. Still firmly in its maturity phase this is still purple with ruby edges. The nose is all savory herbs and meat enveloped by dark fruits. The body has bone marrow and iodine tinged to a wonderful balanced dark fruit finish with acid and partially resolved tannins leading to a long finish. This wine only got better over the years. I really did not like the 2012 so I am interested to see how it has evolved. But the 2011 is great!

    April 24, 2020 - Near but not yet quite at its peak. Cherries, complex herbs and spices, coffee, maybe a hint of licorice, and a beautiful, extremely long and vivid, and constantly changing, aftertaste. This is already a wonderful wine, and will probably be even better something like a year from now. [I used Coravin on the bottle and tasted the remainder two nights later. This time it seemed to be fully at its peak (the change may have been in me, in the serving temperature--probably very slightly cooler this time--, or in some small contact with air in spite of Coravin). Blackberries, cherries, minerals, herbs, spices, and an incredibly long mineral and licorice aftertaste. Steak and cocoa enter the aftertaste after a very very long time. I'm tempted to raise the score to 96 points, but am leaving it as is. I'll try to taste another bottle in the next month or so to get a clearer idea of what's going on with this wine.]

    November 30, 2019 - Deep red-purple in color. Aromas and palate changes in the glass over a period of >30 mins. Initially floral, high toned blue-black fruited aromas give way to hung meat, graphite brown spices. Similar on the palate - decidedly floral and lifted fruit in the first part and moving to more brawny sautéed meat and mushrooms with medium acidity, hint of tannins and a spicy, wood perfumed finish.

    June 13, 2019 - Definitely still at its peak. Nicely smoothed out and great to drink with or without food. Unfortunately this was my last bottle - I think it would still be good several more years - I miscalled this aging in my earlier bottles.
