    September 1, 2020 - I was primed to hate this. Instead, I just didn't care for it. Very ripe and '07. That's not for me, but my in-laws were all over it.

    March 7, 2017 - Overly ripe and horrendously cloying, in part, because the low acidity and mellowed tannins are unable to balance the sugar. Yuck. A reminder why I cut back on CDP years ago.

    September 18, 2015 - Yet another aged bottle that was recently bought from MacArthur Beverages and had a cork breaking in half upon opening. No signs of seepage though. Taste wise, improved with air over several hours. Typical of CDPs, had low acidity but still some noticeable tannins left. On the palate, a tad too sweet to my taste, reminiscent of fruity Napa cabs, albeit with obvious age and more balsamic-like sweetness. Drinking well now and still has few years left prior to starting to go downhill.
