    August 5, 2015 - A Special Dinner (Park 75, Four Seasons Hotel, Atlanta): Fairly pure black currant fruit, a little mint, a little simple but very pleasant and still very much alive.

    August 23, 2014 - Very enjoyable. Still some fruit showing.

    March 21, 2008 - What a delicious surprise - a superb wine. Bordeaux-like nose, very Left Bank on the palate. My guess would be it is in the prime time for drinking right now - can't imagine it getting better. Great balance of remaining fruit, smoothed tannins - just delightful. Hope the other bottles have faired as well...yum.

    July 30, 2006 - Drank with greek lamb chops at thebonneydooner's house. This was a pleasant surprise after puchasing off winebid for $25. No bricking around the rim, but the color is beginnign to lighten a bit. Flavors tended towards chocolate and cola and finish went on forever. Definitely one to drink slowly and savor.
