    January 10, 2016 - Decanted for about an hour at a local steakhouse. Was absolutely brilliant. Beautiful expressive nose and an explosive palate. These wines are brilliantly made and a pleasure to drink.

    May 15, 2015 - Full, fruity, flavorful. Smells great, drinks smooth with long legs and a long finish. Truly outstanding.

    January 5, 2015 - This isn't my favorite Fairchild- which means it's still a top notch wine. It's a bit closed now, like a lot of 2008 wines I think it still needs a couple years. Heavy with oak tanin, but wonderful dark fruit that just isn't yet ready to explode like it will soon.

    December 27, 2013 - can't say this did that much for me...seemed kind of simple, big and fat...others seemed to enjoy more

    June 22, 2013 - My first Fairchild as well as for the group...had about an hour of air in the bottle before pouring and will likely decant the next one. Nose of dark fruits, some sweetness and spice. The mouthfeel was silky and rich, but by no means overdone. Great structure to the wine. The finish was long with very little heat...pure satisfaction. We drank alongside a 2008 Alpha Omega, 2007 Scarecrow and 2007 Continuum and the Fairchild was my clear favorite.
