    November 29, 2016 - Consistent with previous notes, but still seems to be in a closed, mellow, soft phase. However, there is still a tight core, so I don't think its quite at peak. Drink after 2018.

    October 9, 2016 - Pretty much ready to drink now and shows exactly as you'd expect. Lush merlot fruit with sweetness augmented by oak; New World in style and fun to drink if you like the style. 89-90

    May 23, 2016 - Dried mushrooms, dark cherry, and sharp cheese notes on the nose...seems very right bank. The wine hits the palate with some spunky acidity, then chewy tar and leather mixing with strawberry daiquiri and sour cherry. Feels a bit hot on the finish.
