    September 28, 2017 - Not sure if it was the bottle or just the passage of time, but this seemed over the hill. Drink now. 13.9%

    May 17, 2017 - This was just a bit behind the 2004 Alta Malbec. Beautiful dark fruit with soft tannins and a smooth finish. At it's peak.

    March 17, 2017 - Decated 1 hr, I have not tasted since 2012, perhaps because I found the last bottle not all that appealing, however this bottle was quite to the contrary, According to CT I still have 1 more bottle damn if I know where. Nice cedar nose with hints of plum, chocolate and cherry. The palate was full of similar flavors, with some nice rustic notes on the finish, way more balanced and integrated than the bottle I tasted in 2012. Paired with Cucina soup from one of my favorite Italian restaurant in the area. Drink soon!
