    February 18, 2017 - Superb showing for this, my last bottle of this wine. Dark in the glass, impeccable balance between the cedary notes, classic cassis and graphite notes. with good acidity still in place. Perfect with a beef roast and yorkshire pudding.

    March 17, 2012 - Well balanced, even mild after all these years. Goes very well with steak and beef stew.

    February 19, 2012 - Sitting in a happy place right now, but the fruit on this bottle was starting to thin a touch. Decent structure and complexity that keeps it just on the right side of thin and austere although I would start cracking open any remaining bottles. Pencil lead, soil and some tannic structure gives this a definite old world feel and is enhanced with food in your mouth. Probably at its peak in terms of complexity, although no rush to drink.

    March 26, 2011 - This wine is still drinking very well in spite of it's drinkability being past due on cellar tracker. There is a sweet nose of cream and cherries. The taste was very smooth and even but not a lot stands out. There is a little cream, a little dark fruit, a little tannin and a little of this and a little of that. Again, nothing huge stands out. I'm glad I popped it.
