    May 19, 2014 - This was a very nice wine. Purple and opaque right to the edge of the glass; I'm left to wonder if a little petit verdot might have made it into the mix. The nose is dominated by floral notes. The palate adds dark fruit, chocolate and mocha. The finish is medium in duration and features sour cherries. 5+13+16+8=92

    August 2, 2013 - Tasted at Silver Oak today, lovely nose of dark fruit, very open and aromatic today with hints of black cherry and plum, on the palate not as complex tasting as previous bottles, slightly soft but tasty today, medium body and medium finish.
