Nicely balanced fruit and tannins. Dry finish. Extremely drinkable. Enjoyed with 2020 Thanksgiving at-home steakhouse feast.

Smooth and slightly tannic. Not as dry or robust as the 2010. Milds as it oxidizes in your glass. Pleasant to drink and share.

2011 on 8/27/16. This bottle has TCA taint. Has the musty aftertaste. Also the cork was starting to seep up.
