    September 20, 2015 - some depth and complexity still there, but afraid this one may be turning...drink quick

    July 24, 2011 - At first seemed thin and lacking fruit but after after 30-60 minutes this was drinking really well. Stewed tomato and fig on the nose and then bright rasberry/blackberry with strong acidity. Nice long finish. Drank well with sirloin burgers and tater tots! 42% cab, 34% merlot, 24% syrah. This bottle certainly showed its age but was drinking just fine so hard to say based on past reviews where this vintage is at.

    May 6, 2011 - Drunk over 2 days. Very nice the first day, 24 hours later it was beginning to fade badly with noticeable oxidization. No matter how you slice it, though, much better than the '01 I tasted a few days ago. Color still a deep dark purple. Nose was decent yesterday, but somewhat oxidized today. Pretty ripe and round in the mouth, with a nice rich mouthfeel and smooth, satiny finish. Drink up! 5-8-14-3: 80/100

    December 23, 2010 - Another of my 100 point penalty wines, 3 in a row that on my palate and others was a fine wine. At least a 90 or higher

    I'm new to Cellar Tracker and as I load on my cellars and discover the past maturity wines I am drinking them on this recommendation.

    Maximus we enjoyed all aspect of this wine front to back. Nice fruit, balance and finish
