    March 5, 2017 - Decanted for about an hour. Nose of dried cherry and raspberry. Color still great considering bottle age. Sediment on cork, light sediment in bottle. Palate definitely shows resolved tannins with a little gritty on the mid palate of coffee and dried red fruits. Finishes a little vegetal. Still had some life, left but definitely running out of gas. Still very drinkable.

    September 8, 2012 - PNP, no decant necessary this is ready right out of the bottle. Soft lush fruit with a little smoked meat, no tannins left drink up!!!!

    April 1, 2012 - A bit more refined with fruit more balanced. Still lovely nose, full red berry upfront flavor with attractive finish.
