    January 25, 2015 - This continues to be a wonderful wine in the sweet spot of its window of drinkability.
    Deep purple color, no signs of bricking. Nose is still closed 90 minutes after decanting.
    Mild tones of tobacco, and leather undergird the fruit, in which currant predominates. Full-bodied, with balance and structure.
    One sip demands another, which is among the highest compliments one can bestow.

    December 11, 2014 - Loved it. It's held up really well but won't last much longer. Cab franc announces itself with lots of spice and cedar. Cab Sauvignon and fruit is there too but less obvious. Really excellent. Have one more bottle coming and will enjoy over the next year for sure.

    November 21, 2014 - Holding up extremely well although I believe it's a couple years past cresting. Was still a lovely bottle to drink with slight oxidation but still that strong old world Bordeaux core.
