    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.

    May 7, 2012 - Decanted for one and hour and followed over the following 2. This was had next to the '08 Sigaro with steaks. Noticeably lighter in color and just delicious in it's own right. Sweeter fruits on the nose and palate. Very noticeable dark cherry flavor and a touch of vanilla on the finish. Tannins were present but seemed to integrate fairly quickly with some air time. Different but pretty much just as enjoyable as the Sigaro. Larry is making some great wine.
