    December 4, 2014 - I opened the first bottle late 2010 and oh boy what a difference. For the first 30 minutes on the nose there was a persistent barnyard aromas with a secondary layer of fruit and flowers. After two hours on the nose transformed into beautifully perfumed red. On the palate round-dry tannins with black raspberry and meet/ leather notes with a pleasant acidity. Still very young wine that should continue to evolve on the next 5-15 years.

    November 16, 2014 - Big, corduroy tannic, but oh so sweet. Had a little bit of stewed fruit up front, but dissipated quickly. Nice!

    October 29, 2014 - Nez sur le balsam, le goudron et les prunaux confits.
    En bouche, Prunes cuites, anis et cerises noires...semble y avoir des notes de réduction!
    Un peu court en fnale.

    October 25, 2014 - Ruby with a bit of orange at the rim. Opening the bottle is like walking into a flower shop. Slow , long legs. After an hour, its pretty high in alcohol with cherry and cherry pit, earth, pine forest, blackberries?, orange peel, flowers all having a party in your mouth. Its really good now, but if the alcohol can resolve a bit more, this will be a killer wine.

    September 9, 2014 - Deep and rich. Complex with tart cherry, pipe tobacco, orange peel, flowers and ripe sweet red fruit. Juicy on the finish.
