    October 2, 2021 - So impressed at this wine's longevity. It seems almost like a two-year old wine, but it's in fact 15. Maybe I would have liked to see some ageing in fact, but my guess is that this will just go on and on for years with this huge power and freshness. No bad thing. In appearance, it's as clean and dark - almost blue - as it would have been on release. The fragrance is immediate as well - soaring aromas of blackberry jam, smoked bacon, tobacco, and cinnamon. Big on the palate, but not at all astringent - the tannins are silky smooth. Elegantly integrated - difficult for a wine of this profile, which typically starts angular, alcoholic and abrasive. It's ageing by softening, but not yet developing tertiary flavours or aromas. Delicious and exciting.

    April 16, 2021 - Drinking nicely, probably on the downslope but not far past peak. Drink in the near term.

    April 10, 2021 - Filtered and decanted for about an hour, drank over about 2 hrs, absolutely delicious! Plum, dark fruit, leather, vanilla, tobacco, hints of almonds and slightly herbaceous notes, firm acidity but very mellow and well integrated, medium-long finish. So glad we waited to drink this!

    March 10, 2021 - Beautiful bouquet with sweet spices. On the palate pleasant sweetness, herb and sweet spices, ripe dark berries, vanilla, sweet chocolate, caramel, cedar and beautiful acidity.

    January 17, 2021 - Slow ox'ed for 5 hours. This wine is real crowd pleaser, a cross between a cherry cheesecake and a blueberry Pop-Tart. Still showy after all these years, but mellow enough and possessing just the right amount of acidity to cut through a grilled strip steak. Very enjoyable.
