    While it says on the label that it can benefit from "four to ten years" of cellaring, this still seems young, if delicious. Intense, long finish, great acid, balance of earth and fruit. What more could you want? Very Good+.

    My guess is just past peak, color is starting to turn. Lovely herbality and fruit. Very Good.

    Quite stinky and volatile on opening, probably flawed. Nothing like two previous bottles from the same secondary market source. Color still has some red. No rating.

A steal at K&L for $25, just wish the last bottle had been better.
