    April 17, 2016 - Opened and poured. Great color - not real deep but nice red color. Very fruity with a wonderful balance and nice finish. Great wine.

    November 4, 2015 - Moving in the right direction since our last bottle. No spritz, the tannins are settling down, and notes of lavender and iodine are emerging to complement the raspberries and chocolate notes. Smooth on the palate with a long finish. Nice...

    October 4, 2015 - Same as prior note, did not need as long of a decant this time - 15 minutes was plenty. Fantastic wine.

    September 5, 2015 - Taste at TETE.
    Black flowers, anise, meat and road tar.
    Complex but actually light on its feet with great acidity on the back end.
    A little - just a little - un-Saxum like in some ways as far as the density goes. Not much heat showing at all.

    July 14, 2015 - Color of dark red. Scents of black and blue berries, bold. Tastes were consistent with scents, with big, bold taste, but not jammy. This blend has a very interesting taste. Enjoyed this.
