    May 15, 2019 - Wow this is super delicious and has plenty of balancing acidity to suggest a long, long life. Super Juice. I've had this from 2004 to 2019 and I must sy today's bottle is just as fresh as the first

    February 3, 2019 - This is still quite primary with intense fruit scents and flavors, but enough tertiary notes from aging in cask to keep it interesting and add complexity. Cassis, blackberries, tar, licorice, menthol. On the palate well balanced by acidity and smooth and round but present tannic backbone. This is developing at a glacial pace. A pleasure to drink it now, but for those who like a more developed less fruity wine, forget it for one more decade minimum. -2035+, 5/12/18/10

    December 27, 2018 - Outstanding. Took about 1 hour to open up. The wine opened up very nicely, rich yet subtle flavors, balanced, perfect with food, only wish I was eating a rib eye. This wine is in a very good place, I would drink now.

    October 26, 2018 - Popped and poured. Excellent wine. Still remarkably young at 17 years. Nearly opaque dark ruby, no rust. The nose jumps out of the glass, offering a veritable smorgasbord on the nose: dried prunes, autumn leaves, black licorice. Sleek, glossy mouthfeel, tannins in evidence but largely resolved. Very rich, textured palate impression. Black fruit to the max. This has aged beautifully into a lovely drink indeed. 5-13-17-9: 94/100.

    October 5, 2018 - Well well look who’s aged quite gracefully. Violets and spicy black currant on the nose with hints of eucalyptus. Similar replays on the palate. Chocolate notes on the palate on the finish. Can last longer but why wait. Life is short.
