    November 27, 2021 - Clearly last peak, but still OK. A cheese wine IMHO, or maybe some dessert.

    January 20, 2021 - Bottle from secondary market
    -mild/moderate bricking
    -caramel raisin
    -hot with a hollowed out mid-palate of oxidized mature notes and finish dominated by EtOH and caramel
    -either an off bottle or over the hill, much more evolved than a '99 opened tonight

    April 6, 2020 - Wow! 22 years old and still delicious. Thanks to those who suggested that it would still be drinkable.

    May 11, 2019 - Well balanced, with good tannic grip, ripe fruit, and decent acidity, but starting to show its age.

    February 4, 2019 - This 20 year old wine drank beautifully. It still possesses intense dark fruits, pepper, perfectly balanced tannic grip and no oxidation. I don't see how it can get any better at this age, so I suggest drinking it if you have it. I am looking forward to enjoying my last bottle later this year.
