    May 6, 2013 - The 2005 drinks particularly better than this one. This wine is darker for sure. Uncorked to a BLACK cork with maybe 1mm cork bleed in certain parts of the bottle. Decanted for sediment (the 2005 had more). The nose initially was very metallic - very dark, not much berry. Lots of roasted fig and a hint of plum. After 20 minutes of decanting, this wine was served with a spicy chicken soup and did beautifully. The wine hit its stride about 45 minutes post decanting with a nice lovely medium to full bodied non-acidic palate of aged blackberry, dark baker's chocolate and a hint of smoke and vintage leather right up front, giving way to roasted fig and a hint of plum in the mid-palate and spice that carried this one to the finish. Well integrated. Not significantly tannic. Alone, this wine is an 87, with food I was almost tempted to give it a 90 because it did a great job of complementing and dancing with the soup instead of trying to crush it. The one thing I don't agree with is this ending date range....2012? Really? OK, so this one isn't young, but it's not done. It IS over the hill though, but not at the bottom of the curve by any means. I believe this one has another 3 years, but if you have a case of this you probably need to start drinking on it now. Drink by 2015.

    December 4, 2011 - Enjoyed it with an Italian dish of slow cooked meat and sauce with pasta added late. Solid wine from Chianti that I enjoy on the palate and does not overwhelm or overimpress. I go to the terroir it must come from to pick up the flavors versus the fruit but I do that frequently with Tuscans. Oak stands out to me, I opened 3-4 hours ahead of drinking.
