    July 12, 2019 - Still excellent at age 20. Deep purple/garnet. Decanted for 45 minutes prior to dinner, which seemed about right. Rich cabernet nose with some earthy notes. Black fruit and some cedar & tobacco on palate; smooth, slightly sweet tannins; long finish. This is fully mature and should hold here for 3-5 more years, but no need to wait.

    November 21, 2018 - At 19 years this was still drinking with nice character. Good long finish.

    May 6, 2018 - Mid-garnet; clean, bold black fruit& pepper, whiff of menthol; palate initially suppressed & dusty fruit, fills out with a good depth. Well mannered finish. On the down slope but holding up well. 48 hours this was fresher & more potent.

    April 7, 2018 - Celebrating our win in the Santa Anita Derby. On to Churchill Downs. Drinking beautifully. Flavors are well developed.
