    January 12, 2015 - So good. This is firing on all cylinders right now. Big and juicy with ripe tannins. Just delicious. Rounded with silky tannins and a long finish.

    September 11, 2014 - Multiple tastings with consistent notes. As with my previous bottles, the cork was dry rotted and fell apart, so I have to suspect improper storage. Even so, tasting nicely with little signs of oxidation or spoilage. Slow to open up, but after 24 hours in the decanter, it was quite outstanding. . Large amount of medium to large sediment. Very strong fruit flavors, plums. Big aromatics, tar, smoked meat. This is an impressive wine especially at this price point. Is this just a fluke of 2007? I haven't tasted any other vintages. If you run across this wine at a similar price point, I'd strongly recommend it. I'm going to drink up my last 2 bottles, these rotten corks will ultimately lead to spoilage. Probably stored upright in a warehouse for too long.

    June 22, 2014 - One of my favorites. I think I honestly like it more than its big brother Merus. Very approachable and right in its window. This was fantastic and truly a big wine. Big fruit forward, yet silky refined tannins, with a touch of acidity and a long lingering finish.
