December 13, 2014 - wow! Explosive nose of super ripe cassis, very black, cedar, sandalwood, nice integrated vanilla, camphor... taste of black ripe cherries, super silky tannins, beautiful 45 seconds finish, nice refreshing acidity, I love this wine that is perfect to drink young!

December 11, 2014 - Firm, with a lot of backbone - so tightly knit. I hesitate to say tannic - the tannins are there but this is more unformed vs. just tannic. This is quite stately, some slight pruniness and some led pencil, not the most open or friendly of wines perhaps, but there is a lot of quality there; it really needs another five years to show it though.

July 3, 2014 - Decanted for 1 hour. This wine had a very chalky characteristic which was hard to get past. Overwhelmed the fruit and other flavors of the wine.

June 7, 2014 - I liked this much better than the 2007 One Point Five I had the other night because it showed more black fruit and had a longer finish. Really showing well right now.
