    December 11, 2020 - Dark red, medium to full body, complex nose. Lots of wood and leather. I don’t think it gets better than this.

    May 29, 2020 - Popped and poured this, my last bottle, Friday night. Delicious! Blackberry and plum fruit, tar, espresso and bitter dark chocolate flavors. Still holding up very well, with years to go before decline. Drink now - 2025.

    May 13, 2020 - Perhaps held on to this wine a bit too long but still enjoyable. Great body and mouth feel. Had adequate heft for New York stip.

    March 14, 2020 - Cork broke in half but otherwise OK, no signs of seepage. 30-minute decant. Remarkably fresh for a 12-year old. Fruit, sweet and savory notes are complex and well-integrated. Delicious. Can't see this improving but seems to have some life left. Enjoy now or over the next 3-4 years if you're lucky enough to have some.

    January 15, 2019 - Decanted 30 min. Seriously good stuff, right from the pop. Had to strain/decant due to the cork falling apart trying to remove it, but the decant was good. Blackberry fruit, savory tar, espresso and fresh ground pepper flavors, with bakers chocolate on the finish. Drink now - 2024.
