    November 2, 2014 - Color: deep dark red. Nose: dark fruit, plum, minor licorice. Body:medium. Acid:Medium. Tannins are soft. Palate is mainly dark fruit and ripe plum, some licorice, some tobacco/leather/smoke. Very rustic wine as others mentioned. Not overly complex but I'm ok with that. It is drinking well right now, seems to be at a nice peak. Beautiful crystallized cork. I
    Enjoyed this.

    December 16, 2013 - Threw a massive amount of sediment. Surprising, considering the year/varietal and the fact that I've had this before. Must have been stored improperly by the store, or maybe even got a bit cooked at some point. Amazingly, still drinkable. Not as rich as last time (obviously) but good.
