    January 18, 2017 - Medium dark purple, a hint of bricking at the edges. Slight hint of violets on the nose.
    Delicious, chewy wine. Densely flavored with great depth of flavor. Tannins still present, but I think this wine has peaked.

    January 7, 2017 - Drinking beautifully (out of half bottle). Dark fruit, mineral flavors with shiny of earth. Smooth and well balanced.

    December 24, 2016 - This is drinking great. Its noticeably softer than recent vintages but its also 15 years old. Beautiful representation of Howell Mtn fruit Red Blend with Cab Franc and Cab Sauv. Always a solid wine....

    November 16, 2016 - Very similar to previous bottle, albeit even more youthful. I probably should have waited at least 6-12 more months before drinking (to see how this may evolve). While it is drinking beautifully right now, I will try to cellar my last remaining bottle for at least 2 more yrs, since I suspect more tobacco/leather/earth will emerge.

    October 30, 2016 - Lovely dark purplish red. decanted for 1 hour consumed at a dinner party. The cabernet franc dominates this wine with distinctive black tea and dried grape leave notes as primary aromas with secondary fruit peeking through. the palate of dried blackberries, figs and heavier tea notes is pleasing. probably has at least 5 more years. consumed with medium rare filet loin and it was a good pairing.
