    November 3, 2017 - I hate it when I wait too long. A bit oxidized, with a funky nose and a licorice/dark cocoa game going on. Can only hope that the older ones in my cellar have fared better.

    October 11, 2017 - Opened for the 14th Anny. Nice intact cork. Aromas of vanilla, cherry, leather, slight cedar. Very smooth, no signs of oxidization or tiring. Will update more.

    April 22, 2017 - Color, a slightly rusty medium red . Nose dominated by pleasant raspberry and cedar. An elegant Bordeaux blend, balanced throughout. Enjoyable finish that begs another sip. This has stood up very well and certainly at least a few more years left in it. Cellared correctly since release.

    December 25, 2016 - mature now but delicious with prime rib or other rich meat. Won't get any better so drink up!
