Key

  •  
    = Not ready yet. Still too angular or closed or otherwise not in balance yet.
  •  
    = Starting to drink well. Probably needs decanting, and definitely a bit of air.
  •  
    = Drinking at what we think is its prime.
  •  
    = Starting its downhill slide, but still worth drinking. But don’t tarry too long…
  •  
    = The end of the line, a shadow of the wine it once was.
