    September 11, 2014 - Decanted 3 hrs, translucent brick color, inviting nose w/cherry, lighter mouthfeel than expected, med length finish with some acid, velvety tannins, easy drinker, loved it but will only buy for special occasions.

    December 25, 2013 - Color: opaque crimson, bricking edges.

    Nose: Cherry, pepper, forest, earth, savory, alcohol.

    Taste: Structured and full-bodied. Intense cherry, pepper, bramble berry, vanilla. Lively acidity. Tannins still going strong. Medium+ finish.

    July 13, 2013 - Sonoma Valley Tasting (K&L Wines, Hollywood): Ripe red fruit. Medium intensity. Some hot alcohol. Fairly balanced. Softer tannins.

    May 2, 2013 - Moderately serious nose, mostly of cherries and chocolate, with air in the glass a little bit of graphite pokes through. Pretty dark "unctuous" style that doesn't really appeal to me, and not enough energy to justify that price tag...if it were more like $40 I'd be happier to endorse it.
