  • Still ok

  • Holy moly, this bottle was singing tonight! Best one yet, and since it was the last one I had, I guess that's all I can ask for (last drank in 2012 I guess). Anyway, slightly disjointed and a little heat showing on the pop, but came together with only 20 min. of air in glass and non-decanted bottle (there was a little sediment, but I worked around it, partially via minimal pours into the big-ass Bdx glass). Fantastic nose of dark fruits, tar, smoke, earth, violets, mushrooms, and minerals. Medium body and acid, long finish, and flavors of cherry and black fruits, an earthy mushroom note, dried spices, and minerals. Awesome showing tonight with a grilled steak. 92-93

  • Might be a bit past its prime,

  • Very dark purple, starting to show a little brick. Plumbs, cherry, chocolate and little blackberry on the nose. Agree with others that this is showing its age and probably a bit over the hill. It's a bit disjointed. Cherries and jam on the attack with bitter dark chocolate finish, but in between those two there's a bit of a sharp medicinal note. Drank alone probably better washing down a steak. Tried vinturi on a glass and wine was a bit more smooth, but also became flat.

  • Another excellent bottle, though this one showed fruit that is beginning to fade a little, and the finish showed imbalance with a little more alcohol and a medicinal note a little reminiscent of cherry Nyquil. No signs of bricking in color. Big nose showing more signs of age than last year, with leather and some meatiness more prominent amid dark fruits. On taste the fruit is still in a great place with lots of rich plum and blackberry sauce along with coffee, soil, and leather. Excellent pairing with roasted pork tenderloin with fresh blackberry mustard sauce and roasted EVO brussel sprouts. Wish I had at least one more bottle to consume this year. This could be approaching end of peak window, so drink up.
