    November 9, 2015 - Really impressive. Still plenty of body, rich flavors, dark prune and currant with herbs and a touch floral on the finish. I'd love to do a blind head to head tasting of this with expensive 1996s- I would be this $17 bottle would be in the top group.

    December 30, 2005 - Last bottle. Brick to orange around the edges. Mature and delightful w/ hint of cinammon along w/ the cassis and dark fruits. This was a great value
