    June 8, 2014 - Great dark ruby color with no sign of bricking. Oak, earth, blueberry, and leather nose. Medium bodied, blackberries, black cherries, well integrated tannins, a dash of pepper, sage, dark chocolate, and a long finish. What a terrific wine, good with food or on its own.

    May 4, 2014 - This followed a 2002 Bressler and held its own. The '02 and the '01 are both showing really well at present, but there's no rush on either one.

    March 15, 2014 - This has blossomed into a complete wine. The nose is pretty with rose petals, raspberries and orange peel. It is ripe but elegant. Tannins are softening and the finish is graceful. A wine of restraint.

    February 14, 2014 - Aged very well. Decanted a couple of hours. Nice dark color. Great nose. Dark fruit with smooth tannins. Great finish.
