    September 18, 2016 - 2-hour decant; mid/full bodied, plush tannins, fruit-forward, young Bdx that leads with some oak and Cab Franc tartness - better with food at the moment. This will develop into something more interesting in a few years.

    August 31, 2016 - Drank over two days. This wine needs to breathe, both to blow off oak elements, and to add weight and depth. Once it breathes deeply it comes alive, showing impressive balance of flowers, fruit, sanguinity, and mineral depth. Great balance, generous mouthfeel, and quite long. A very young wine that needs three to five years from now to come into its own and it should deliver pleasure through 2028-2030. Decant for 5+ hours if drinking now. Great QPR! 92-93.

    June 11, 2016 - Thick, inky, deep purple with sour cherry and cocoa notes. Will benefit with more time but getting close to its window.

    June 10, 2016 - very good wine, poured only 15-20 minutes before drinking and very approachable. For $30-$35 hard to beat the quality especially for 2010 vintage

    May 10, 2016 - This bottle was not as complex as previous ones but it was still so pleasantly balanced, tannic, firm and full bodied. I loved it.
