    September 2, 2019 - Past it's peak but still really enjoyable. Great black and blue fruit along with smoke really showed through. Acid and structure were still there.

    April 2, 2019 - Sadly, the wine was gone. The first sip was questionable, minutes later with the second sip I had some optimism, but by the third sip at ten minutes post-opening I knew she was a goner. So sad . . . .

    March 29, 2018 - Drinking perfectly right now. Big, bold and very smooth. Fruit has really held up well. Should continue to go strong for 3-4 more years.

    January 29, 2017 - I really like this wine. This rich plummy wine still has a tannic edge and seems like it could go for 5 or more years. That being said, I am scratching my head to understand what impelled me to spend $130 on this bottle when I purchased it in 2002. In the US, Carlilse and Alban produce wines like this that are just as good for a fraction of the cost.

    August 29, 2016 - Dark purple. Nose is heavy on dark berry jam, but also dusty and quite complex. Gorgeous sweetness on the palate with just enough grip and high end presence. Resonant. Pleasant soy sauce accent. A great dinner wine.
