    October 28, 2017 - Decanted for an hour. Strong aromas of smoke and menthol with some fruit mixed in. Drinking well now. Not overly complex but delicious. Still has some years left.

    June 2, 2017 - BYOB Lunch get together (Sergi de MeiĆ  - Barcelona): Double decanted for 2 hours. Still a deep color that shows some evolution. From memory: intense aromas of black fruit, smoke and menthol/medicine. Powerful wine on palate, with quite volume but not overwhelming. Plenty of everything here and this seems to start to unwind a bit and can be drank with a some air but it's nowhere near to being ready.

    December 25, 2016 - Drank last nite at Bruce's. Had this wine a year ago and my notes are consistent. Pungent nose of black fruit, along with some tobacco. Light to medium bodied, still plenty of black fruit, along with some cigar smoke and spice. Still holding its own

    March 26, 2016 - Decanted two hours yet still improved substantially in the glass. Well balanced fruit and soft tannins made this a wonderful celebratory wine. While clearly has peaked and perhaps even a little past, there is still much life left.

    December 25, 2015 - Drank with xmas meal. Violet/ruby in color. Nose of black and red fruit, along with some tobacco. Light to medium bodied, still some black fruit (though seemed a bit green, surprisingly) but this wine's more on a tertiary level now with cigar box, tar, spice and smoke. Still a bit hot, and the wine's a bit on the thin side. Likely past its prime by a bit, but still enjoyable enough
