    May 4, 2011 - Dark ruby red color. Still surprisingly fresh with ripe fruit and tangy acidity, definitely wouldn't guess this wine was 10 years old if tasted blind. Particularly notable given we opened the 2000 vintage last night and it wasn't drinkable. 2001 was clearly a better vintage for WA anyway, but the difference in pure drinkability is marked. This wine is still pricey for what you get, but it has held up well and I'd venture could hang around at least another 1-2 years.

    December 16, 2010 - This is amazingly good. A dead ringer for a left bank Bordeaux. A little funk on the nose with cassis and dark fruit. The palate is a nice restrained style with earth and dry tannins. A hint of charcoal and plum.

    February 2, 2010 - A little disappointing considering the price and the age of the wine. Nice cherry and plum flavors with hints of chocolate and green pepper. Medium bodied with an easy finish. All in all not bad but I was expecting more.

    June 22, 2008 - Rich chocolate and blackberry nose with a hint of smoke. The fruit follows through in the mouth with cassis pushing through on the palate. Good structure and balance with a long finish.

    March 8, 2008 - Great nose: chocolate covered black raspberries. Medium bodied.
    Good grip/mouthfeel, but less impressive presence of fruit. Good everyday quaffer, but not for special occasions.
