    December 31, 2018 - Excellent, sublime, delicious...right in its peak. Full of dark fruit. Benefited from decanting but not sure it wouldn’t have been fine just with a little time to breathe...cork was deteriorating tho so something to be cautious of. Still has at least a few years before it starts going downhill
