    December 8, 2018 - Had a magnum so it aged more delicately... bit muted, but smooth as hell! Maybe best a year or two ago, but still LOVED IT!

    May 11, 2018 - All the reviews said it peaked & died 3 years ago, so I wasn't expecting much. That being said drink it sooner rather than later. Age makes wine an integrated wiser version of itself & this one...not intriguing enough at any age, so drink up. At first, it unveiled wet forest floor. After an hour of decanting, it was loaded with tobacco leaf, dark berry jam, cassis, black currant, & rich velvety tannins. Showing just fine, as long as you let it open up. I give it a "good" rating because it tastes manmade & stripped of soul. It's clean, precise, & boring, but good.
