    August 2, 2018 - Corked magnum.

    Update 9/20/2018: this was purchased from the winery. Today I received a replacement (1997 CS magnum).

    Great wines come from great people. Thank you Dorie, et. al.!

    July 22, 2018 - The color is similar if not slightly darker to the last time I had this six years ago. The nose shows some tertiary notes, the palate is sweeter than I recall. It is full of cassis, leather, dark chocolate and espresso. The tannins are fully integrated. The mouthfeel is that of whole milk. The finish is above average. This has aged perfectly and it is now at full peak. I don’t think there’s reason to wait any longer. Although the liquid is clear, there is a considerable amount of sediment, so decanting is advised.

    January 11, 2018 - Nose was showing signs of serious age but the palate was still decent. Def on the decline but still a good experience. Drink up if you have them there is nothing more in the evolution process that will be positive.

    December 16, 2017 - The cork was crumbling but this bottle was still quite good and not at all oxidized. Definitely past its peak drinking window and recommend drinking soon.

    October 16, 2017 - Oxidized. Completely skunked. But the cork was in great shape.
