    December 5, 2018 - Fabulous and rich. Aromas of ripe crushed blueberry, on the palette this begins with smoked wood, creamy mouthfeel and blue & black fruits. This is just so balanced that's it's freaky. I am getting a plethora of fruit at the mid palette and finish. Cherries and blueberries and plum and some cassis with a strong asphalt core along with some tobacco leaf. I keep coming back to creamy.

    December 4, 2018 - Though there were similarities in my notes from a bottle opened one year ago (95), this was almost over the top. Lots of dried black fruits and cocoa. I'm not really sure how to rate it.

    February 20, 2018 - From a magnum. Decanted for 30 minutes and then back in the bottle for a little over an hour. Drank over the next 2-3 hours. Lots of black fruit in a full and smooth mouthful. Need some of the air to get over a tannic bite on the backend.

    December 9, 2017 - Sweet ripe currants and plush plum flavors. Very flabby, with little underlying structure. This hasn’t gotten better since the last time we tried this a couple of years ago. Poor QPR.
