    September 17, 2014 - Plum, dark chocolate, and black fruits with smooth tannins. Medium finish.

    September 14, 2014 - This was decanted for 2 hours prior to the first sip. In the decanter upon opening there was a wonderful nose of black juicy fruit. The CT window has this "finished" in 2016 and I don't buy that. This has at least 5 years left. It is not pop n pour now and it was better on day 2 than day 1. On the palate there was some herbs, blackberry, and good structure. Nicely balance wine.

    March 24, 2014 - Popped and poured. I'd recommend a short decant...initially, there was some prominent oak on the nose...that disappeared quickly. Blue fruit profile, well integrated tannins, creamy mouthfeel. Very nice.

    January 12, 2014 - Deep berry bubblegum core, mint, lead pencil. Fully integrated tannins. Drinking very well right now.

    May 1, 2013 - Still has a great nose, and has come together nicely. Lots of fruit, leaning towards the blue/black side of the spectrum, with a note of coffee and earth. My wife found this to be "heavy", and it is, but I don't find it clumsy or cumbersome to drink. As before, the QPR is fair. Drink over the next 3-4 years.
