    July 11, 2020 - Openned a magnum; still lots of freshness, fruit, and structure. Tannins are fairly well-integrated, and still has more years ahead of it.

    May 4, 2019 - Perfect example of how to enjoy a fine aged wine. Decanted for 2 hours and enjoyed with friends, tenderloin and smoked Mac and cheese. Tannins balanced with jammy fruit and oak. Lovely at cellar temperature.

    November 16, 2015 - Still big, and probably best for the end of a meal, with chocolate.

    October 2, 2014 - Continues to mellow and improve. Still dark, dark purple, but the high alcohol -- over 100%! -- is better integrated.

    January 17, 2014 - Yes, it is calming down. Still huge, and with years before it is finally resolved. Good on the east side of a polar vortex.
