    May 26, 2019 - Very nice. Initial impression right out of the bottle left little to be desired. Rather flat and unimpressive. After 30 mins in the glass its potential started to reveal itself. Rich dark fruit flavors, dry, complex and viscous profiles. Good body and finish. After an hour, picked up even more flavors and complexity. Last sip out of the glass was by far the best. Can’t wait to see how the remaining bottles develop over the next few months.

    February 22, 2019 - Sadly, I believe this is just a bit past its prime. It's certainly not "flawed", it's just not at any kind of peak. I think 2015 - 2017 would have been great for this wine. Decanted for 30 minutes and drank over the next 100 minutes...but it had little to offer.

    September 17, 2018 - Really liked the first bottle I had a while back, but the most recent one I had was quite green.

    June 18, 2018 - Purchased a case of this a few years back and have had a few bottles out of my cellar from the case; they have been beautiful and wonderful. I'd argue as high as 93 points. Been saving them for some more age. But we opened two bottles last night, and both were nowhere near previous bottles. I think time, at least for me, has caught up with these bottles. I'll be drinking what I have left soon and will do so with a longer decant to see if something changes. Will report findings then. Still very good wine, but off quite a bit from the first four bottles (which, again, were fantastic).
