    February 11, 2017 - Brilliant stuff. Full body, black red color, this is way above it's pedigree. Black fruit, mature and powerful, showing notes of charcoal, coffee and cola. Elegant, freshly persistent bordeaux with a long finish.

    January 1, 2017 - I would not believe those that consider this wine past its prime. Decanted for a couple of hours but tannins remained too dominant. Nevertheless, tertiary aromas are already developing with some nice cedar wood.

    December 25, 2016 - Earthy and spicy on the nose and palate. Wine still had tannic grip even after it sat in the glass. Higher alcohol levels were somewhat noticeable. Overall the impression was a powerful, rustic wine that could stand up to some pretty hearty holiday food.

    November 22, 2016 - Coloring is more burgundy than BDX; faint red fruits on a modestly dry palate. Fleeting flavors quickly dissipate front-palate. Long past its prime but fine tonite with pasta.

    October 25, 2016 - Lean and structured, with hints of plums and leather. Seems like this needs more time to tame the tannins.
