    September 16, 2021 - Good wine, but lacks delicious factor.

    February 28, 2021 - My last '08. Still drinking well. Lots of fruit, may be due to the petite sirah. Opened up over about an hour.

    January 5, 2021 - Nice cork, no decant, but slow ox 30+ minutes in glass. Some plums and brambleberry on the nose - with maybe a dash of dill and anise. Rich palate with ripe plums and cherries and just enough structure to make this food friendly. Seems to be at or beyond peak - recommend drink up in 2021!

    January 4, 2021 - This was awesome, I thought it was past its prime. The tannins where mild, and the blend of Zin, Sarah, Carignan was perfect. This is my last one wish I had another dozen to savour.
