    June 21, 2019 - Still holding on to a good amount of fruit and tannins. Some development, but less than one would expect for a 22 year old wine. A bit stern on day one, but much more open-knit and giving on day two. Based on this well-stored bottle, this can still be cellared for a bit.

    May 16, 2019 - A little funky whe first opened but became beautiful mature cab flavors of anise, cigar box and red fruits. Sweet and long in the finish with a beautiful nose after 20 minutes.

    December 26, 2018 - Popped, breathed in bottle 90 minutes, poured. Still holding well, but I think it was better three and a half years ago. Could just be a phase, but I wouldn’t bet on it. More likely it will continue to gradually decline. If you have some, I’d drink up.

    August 27, 2018 - Soft, round, rich blackberry fruit, excellent structure, ample finish, showing bottle age, drink up
