    August 31, 2019 - still working on drinking up dusties with longevity estimates prior to 2019. shared with pat at selkirk manor. celebrating the holiday weekend. we have enjoyed this wine since 2009, drinking a bottle every one or two years. it has been fun watching the wine develop and evolve over that period of time. had not enjoyed one of these since last tasted on 9/3/2017. at that time the wine was not fully mature but heavy sedimentation suggested that it might be reaching peak. presently, two years later, some bottle variation is evident in that the sedimentation is less abundant and the acidic spine suggests that the wine still has further to go. in addition, aeration via vigorous swirling in the glass was necessary to fully bring out the fruit components. the wine continues toshow bright cherry fruit but with an elegance as described by the pros. also taste a little coffee. firm structure. still coming together. this remains one of my favorite mid-level argentine malbecs. alas, this was the last of seven bottles so i will not have an opportunity to see how the wine presents in its final stage of development.

    February 10, 2018 - Decanted and drank from a 6 litre bottle, which still had plenty of life left. Opened up nicely over 6 hours with tones of ripe blackberries and plum.

    September 3, 2017 - shared with pat at selkirk manor. celebrating the holiday weekend. we have enjoyed this wine since 2009, drinking a bottle every one or two years. it has been fun watching the wine develop and evolve over that period of time. had not enjoyed one of these since last tasted 9/2016. the wine is still robust and continues to show well. notes similar to last time. bright cherry fruit but with an elegance as described by the pros. also taste a little coffee. nice structure. still coming together. heavy sedimentation in the last glass poured. this remains one of my favorite mid-level argentine malbecs. may have the last bottle in about six months since it seems to be peeking.

    April 19, 2016 - Starting to show signs of age. Dark, almost brick. Layered, nuanced, gorgeous. Drink up
