    June 17, 2019 - Had in a vertical with 1983. Contrast, but still personality themes. This was certainly fruit forward, but more relaxed and integrated compared to last bottle a couple of years ago. Beringer PV is so consistent (have had many different vintages) and always carries both depth and elegance. To me the 2007 is just now entering the early window with a one hour decant, but will go for many years and mature into something much more complex / secondary.

    May 26, 2019 - Purity of fruit hits me. Drinking fine now. Full body, dark red fruit into blue and black as the evening went on. No graphite or tobacco notes; just subtle but noticeable changes in the fruit notes as the evening went on. Maybe some cocoa ? Chocolate? at the end. Some depth, dark and lovely. Liked it, will have my last bottle in 2022 ...

    May 23, 2019 - Drank beside a 2009 Realm BTK and held its own but didn't have as beautiful an entry or finish -- it was a Joe Frazier to Realm's Muhammed Ali. The two heavyweights put on a show! Beringer was somewhat tight up front (victim of PnP in a restaurant with no decanter) with a long uppercut of a finish filled with graphite, rocks, cigar box and coffee grounds. Fruit arrived after an hour or so of slow ox which added back needed pleasure. In the end it was bested by a Realm that floated like a butterfly while delivering a knockout blow of complexity and balance.
