    July 24, 2017 - Still drinking very well.
    Decanted, but did start to drink immediately after opening.
    Interestingly, the cork broke when opening, and there was a lot of sediment, but the wine was fine.
    But I would recommend drinking immediately rather than letting it air our for hours before drinking.
    This blend is very smooth and not overpowering. Paired well with a variety of food at the Italian restaurant

    June 2, 2017 - Excellent. The cassis fruit is still going strong; indeed, it is so deep as to become almost tarry. The nose is full of cedar and spice. Full-bodied and decadent yet serious due to the balanced earthy flavors and the strong tannins. Drinks great now, but I'm not sure it's reached its peak yet; no hurry here.

    February 6, 2017 - Fantastic. At its peak. Tannins have softened. Velvety finish. Drink now.

    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.
