    December 22, 2018 - More subtle than the -99 but gains power while in the glass, velvety and sophisticatedly liquorice driven subtle but firmly structured taste, probably at its peak right now. This vintage is more about force than power.

    December 11, 2018 - Acker BYO 2018 (Tribeca Grille): A wine which really needs food to bring out the best aspects of it. By itself it's a bit faded and muted. With the short rib, it feels a bit fresher. Hint of fruit and a touch of sweetness in addition to the leather.

    September 9, 2018 - Outstanding. Near perfectly balanced fruit and tannin. I’d say drank at perfect time, though will probably could go a few more years.

    June 15, 2018 - Amali BYO Dinner (Amali Restaurant - NY, NY): This was in a great spot for me tonight - in contrast to the bottle I tried last summer which was very tannic. This was very "tangy" with tart blackberry fruit, dusty tannins, sun warmed earth, and a zingy lively mouthfeel. Really fun to drink and quite enjoyable!

    June 15, 2018 - Another Amali BYO dinner (Amali in NYC): The freshest this wine has ever tasted to me. It's still got the fruit and then still that smokey cigar overlay. It's quite nice. Drinking well. This bottle had many years left although given previous experience with the wine I know that can vary a lot.
