    October 18, 2019 - Much improved from 2 years ago. Dark, smooth, delicious. Edges are ever so slightly showing age and the nose has started to reveal a bit as well. Still plenty of fruit and the tannins are well integrated. This paired beautifully with 48 hour sous vide short ribs and mushroom risotto. One bottle left and I wish I hade more. A steal for $20 USD.

    August 20, 2019 - Decanted for 4 hours this time. Decant did help but I still don't seem to enjoy this as much as most of the professional and CT reviewers. The fruit is there, but still seems a little disjointed and closed to me. Plenty of spice and ripe tannins, but the fruit doesn't show like you would want. Hoping time will help.
