    August 28, 2015 - Big and dark, with lots of chocolate, coffee and black fruit. Smooth and silky with soft, fine tannins. Good acidity to balance out the richness.

    November 17, 2014 - The wine looks inky colored. The legs are fast. There is light sediment in the bottle. It smells like blackberry, blueberry, forest floor, toast and clove. It tastes like blueberry, blackberry, black currant (cassis), raisin, plum and vanilla. probably too much vanilla at the end for me
