    January 25, 2015 - I agree with others - this is in a really good place right now. Beautiful fruit with secondary characteristics starting to show up as well. Long finish.

    January 10, 2015 - Pretty consistent with previous notes. I think the fruit has mellowed from the previous years bottles - for my palette, I would drink these in the next year, I wouldn't hold it beyond that.

    January 4, 2015 - Star of the night! Not a surprise. This bottle lived up to expectations. It is in a really good place now. If you are looking for a Burgundian style wine, then this isn't for you. Gobs of fruit, but integrated beautifully.

    January 3, 2015 - Paired with a seared true Wagyu beef steak, and it could not have been a more perfect companion to the fattiness of the Wagyu.

    January 3, 2015 - MUCH better than last showing.. and based on all the notes I've read here, I think this bottling had some serious variation. Maybe some issues with their Corks? First bottle shared was wicked wonderful. Second bottle drank a few months ago, lacked fruit, character, and any depth. This bottle was once again, very alive, full of fruit and almost bursting out of the bottle. Beautiful aromatics and incredible mouthfeel. Enjoyed this one very much, and was a great comparison to a Sea Smoke Southing.
