    September 7, 2019 - Bottle was still fantastic. Have had this in the past and I did enjoy it more previously. This is possibly started to hit it's down fall. Drink if you still have it.

    September 2, 2019 - This bottle was more consistent with previous tastings than the last bottle. More balanced with dried fruit, herbal character, fine tannins, palate length and red fruit flavors. Floral, violet aromas with a dash of pepper. Significant licorice on palate. Alcohol and acidity more in sync. Full bodied. For my palate, it is at the tipping point of becoming too raisiny for my palate. I'll drink up my final two bottles soon. Decanted for an hour.

    August 26, 2019 - Tom's note made me open one to check what's going on. This bottle was fine. It was as balanced as expected, which is to say not so much. But it was a decent bottle of high octane CDP. I guess you get what you expect with this one. Big, ripe, not much nuance, but works well with grilled meats.

    August 26, 2019 - This wine is past it's prime. I was very disappointed to witness the tired, dried fruit character and abundance of alcohol. Decanted for more than an hour and it never came around. It's a bit oxidized too. Because I gave it a much higher score when I tasted it a month ago, maybe it's just a bad bottle.

    August 25, 2019 - Bricking in color. Sweet fragrant nose. Palate is ripe fruit driven, slightly medicinal. Medium bodied. Alcohol slightly overpowers the balance of acid and tannin but just barely, overall, still fine balance. I doubt this will improve so time to drink.
