    June 18, 2017 - was afraid to decant before serving, as was worried that it might die on the vine soon after opening.
    It didn't. We opened and I took a taste, and decided to wait a few minutes. Within just a few minutes, it was fine.
    Very elegant and distinctive. Great, powerful smell, and a very long finish. Definitely still OK to drink

    September 16, 2012 - Surprisingly great- I was expecting the 2000 to be o ly ok. Nice nose, but the flavors are intense, huge fruit. Red berries and complex fruit bowl. Long complex finish.
