Have overlooked this hummer until lunch yesterday. Nice clear ruby. Nose highly perfumed with notes of vanilla. Good entry,solid center and a 3&1/2 lapper finish that shows this baby is sliding down hill. The fruit loses out to the oak after 1 hour in the glass. Not objectioable yet but doesn't bode well for the future. I'm putting this on the "drink now,not later" list. 89/89 35.14.5% alc. WW

Heeding my own advice I opened another for lunch yesterday. Not much change but did seem to have a little more structure than the previous bottles. Maybe bottle variation but no change in scoring. A pleasant enough drink. WW

Found another and opened after CBs' "Procedure" today. Either me tasties are dying, crusting, decaying, or have no relation to reality or this sucker be improving. Only 1 more left so will rely on the 1st 3 but who gives a rats in the big scheme? WW

Always nice to know that there can be an upside though! [img]/ubb/smile.gif[/img]
