    March 24, 2019 - Nothing has changed in my opinion since December 2018. Still a darned fine wine at a great price.

    March 3, 2019 - Popped and poured into glasses. Just didn’t feel like a fancy decant on what is supposed to be a fairly straightforward wine with some age.

    Wine is surprisingly purple and youthful in appearance. Don’t even see any evidence of bricking.

    On the nose: mint, anise, bay leaf, olives, cherries, hint of green.

    On palate: wine is sound, definitely has some age to it. Medium alcohol, softened tannins, low-medium alcohol, short finish, medium body. Taste is less compelling than smell, as the complexity is subdued. But pretty nice and a good change of pace to have something with some bottle age this weekend.

    February 28, 2019 - 1st of 12. Decanted and poured right away. Initially a grapey nose with some mineral herbal notes. Complex. Layered. Elderberry. Leather. Wormwood. Acids are softening. A bit of bitter on the finish. I plan to drink these over the next 4-5 years.

    February 18, 2019 - The fill was into the neck and the cork was sound; popped, poured and consumed over the course of 3 hours. A dark ruby core, with some hints of pink at the rim. A bit straight-laced and reserved on the nose, with some notes of high-toned red fruits. Medium bodied, lacking in terms of texture and depth. I didn't really enjoy this wine, and I was paying particular attention as I recently received an offering at a good price. Given how little pleasure I derived from this bottle, it is an easy pass.

    December 31, 2018 - Same impressions as those I wrote on 12/18/18. A solid wine after some aeration.
