    September 19, 2020 - this wine has aged to perfection. I am so impressed with its power and elegance with wonderful fruit notes after all this time. Having with a pork loin...so good.

    February 17, 2019 - Two bottles last night with 5 friends at an Italian restaurant. Opened both at beginning of meal. Initial bottle started out on the leaner side, with mineral and a touch menthol. The cherry fruit was tight and secondary. We should have had wine decanted. As the initial glass was exposed to air, it gradually opened and the cherry emerged and brightened. The added time for the second bottle and a bone-in porkchop brought out the best in the wine. This wine should hold for a year or so more, but is now at or maybe slightly beyond its peak. One bottle remains; will drink this year.

    June 11, 2018 - Still has years to go. Big tannins, acidic earthy dark cherry pine

    December 26, 2016 - Drinking very well at the moment. Not sure if the 1.5l format helped at all, but color was bright purple with no visible brick edges. Nose was of dark cherry, and acidity and tannins were soft with no discernible tartness. Very smooth enjoyable drinking at Christmas dinner.

    May 27, 2016 - Still drinking quite well. Requires a brief decant of at least forty minutes. Notes of muted dark cherry and chocolate with alluvial and tobacco accents. This wine is quite mature and should be explored over several hours as the initial character changes. (Much like some people LOL). Sadly, this is my last bottle.
