    February 8, 2015 - Dense and chewy, dried cherry, strawberry and cranberry fruit flavors, mild tannins and a hint of sweet oak mid-palate, slightly dry with a short finish. Decanted for 90 minutes. This bottle was showing an older profile than the one we had Nov 2014.

    November 23, 2014 - Dark red with garnet edge; strawberry rhubarb nose; penetrating black cherry and blackberry fruit, really robust with some alcohol push on the lingering finish. We decanted this for 2 hours and consumed it over the next 2.5, and it just kept getting better as it opened up.

    October 25, 2014 - Dried cherries mainly. Limited tannins. Enjoyed the bottle but the finish was pretty short. Not a lot left on it I'd say.

    July 23, 2014 - Medium red-garnet color, pale-edged. Huge nose, cherry-berry fruit, expresso, celeriac, fresh fully synthetic motor oil. On arrival, negligible tannin and low acidity; silky body. Eyes closed, I'd have pegged this for a Shafer Hillside Select cabernet of similar age. Plump and rich, easy drinking, not especially complex, but oh so enjoyable. Bottle #1 of one, from magnum.
