    November 28, 2014 - Better than I would have imagined. Great taste, perfect balance. I loved it! I wish that I purchased more than 2 bottles.

    November 26, 2014 - Still closed. The only improvement from 6 months ago is that strong fruit aroma starts to show after 1 hour decante, but it is still full of alcohol. 3 more hours in my glass and it gets a little more balanced. Not a bad bottle, it is just not a good drink window.

    November 19, 2014 - From memory last night. Intense complex nose of flowers, fruit and spices. Deep penetrating pure fruit on the palate with a nice acid frame, long fruit driven finish with floral notes resurfacing. 55+14+18+8.

    November 15, 2014 - Completely agree with ERICLI's comments below. This CDP was tight and closed for business even after a 3 hour decant. Surprising how little it is offering up this time. Should have known better but fortunately this was only a 375 ml bottle. Will forget about the others in my cellar and check back in a few years on this one. NR.

    October 20, 2014 - Dark color, typical CDP with bubble gum nose, full of cherry and sweet fruit. However, it is still too young where all the goodies not smooth out and well blended. Still feel the structure on palate but keep evolving for the 2 hours. I should keep the other 2 bottles not open until 2020.
