    May 4, 2019 - Nose of dried cherry, earth. Beautiful mouth with still the impression of cherries. Excellent acidity and tannic structure on the finish with a touch of sweet tobacco. Was clearly built to last and drinking extremely well now.

    September 8, 2017 - Awesome... subtle, plum notes, long finish. Definitely closing in on end of life, but killer with lightly seasoned beef kabobs.

    April 26, 2017 - Opened for a 21st birthday celebration (not mine). Still had a solid and slightly earthy nose. Good color and depth. Drank very well paired with a steak at an Italian restaurant. A lot of the fruit had disappeared but that was to be expected given the bottle age. Still had plenty of structure and nice soft tannins at the end.

    January 6, 2017 - PnP. Very similar to last notes - red & dark fruit, vanilla and touches of tobacco and vegetal; nice, balanced, medium-bodied palate of the same with soft tannins & medium finish. The body was stable throughout the night. No change the following night from 375 ml. P.S. Lots of seepage into the cork, which was softly sealed against the bottle and came out easily, but the wine was fine. Wine laid down and no leakage.
