November 23, 2014 - Dark red with garnet edge; strawberry rhubarb nose; penetrating black cherry and blackberry fruit, really robust with some alcohol push notifications n the fact bush, which really lingers. We decanted this for two 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.

January 5, 2014 - A little hot when first opened, but, this really came together after 3-4 hours. Velvety smooth with delicious fruit.
