    February 23, 2019 - Decanted with a fair amount of sediment, brandy nose, plenty of ripe black berry fruit on the palate, the finish is a bit hot and astringent. This was bottle number ten of twelve,at nearl a decade old not going to get any better, once the fruit is gone this boxer will be knocked out.

    December 6, 2017 - Crazy sediment,make sure you let it sit for a bit after the Mollydooker shake. Pretty and full on night one, showing a nice age on night two. Blueberry and vanilla on the nose. Palate is lush and silky with vanilla, blueberry, anise, and a hint of green-ness on the back end. The finish is euphoric with berries and still a note of tannins. Drinking well now, but actually has a few more years to go. 09 was the vintage they didn't produce premium and blended it all into the base cuvees, this is showing those high end notes.

    November 19, 2017 - Hot! Huge, extracted, heady, alc burn. Had a little left in the bottle and on night three it had finally settled in a bit. Throwing decent amount sediment by night three too. Big black cherry flavor, ton of punch. I like bold reds but this was over the top even for my tastes. Recommend a splash decant to let some of the heat subside.

    May 7, 2017 - Fruit is tasting a bit overextracted and dark. Past it's prime but still a good, full bodied wine.
