    December 26, 2014 - Very drinkable. Nice fruit forward. A little light on the finish.

    December 9, 2014 - Ruby colored. Aromas of chocolate and cherries. Lovely fruits up front- raisin, plums, some dusty notes followed by mocha finish.

    November 1, 2014 - (Tasting at the winery) Open for business right now, as opposed to the 2012, which was tight. Dark ruby with kirchenfenster legs and enchanting dusty fruit-driven notes. A finish that seems to go on for hours. Still tannic, but slowly shedding some of its baby fat.

    October 30, 2014 - Contender for WOTN at the auction mtg. Great minerality to balance red and black fruit along with herb and smoke...the floral nose is impressive for intensity.
