    June 25, 2017 - I think this wine is in a dumb phase. The wine tasted disjointed and awkward. After several hours in the decanter it did come around but I am not touching the rest in my cellar for several years. Sigh....

    May 26, 2017 - Lovely aroma of cherry and a bit of earth. Nice strong attack but it really falls off on the palate. The finish is a real let down. I think that this might be going through a dumb phase right now? I have had many bottles from other vintages and it's a goto for me, so this was a little disappointing.
    I won't look at another one for at least a couple of years.

    April 9, 2017 - Great structure with good acidity, nice red fruit, and a long life ahead. Not offering a tremendous amount of pleasure right now but showing a lot of promise for future enjoyment. I'd love to taste this 20years from now as I'd wager it will stand tall in the great tradition of telegraph.

    April 9, 2017 - I mean this was a "nice" wine with no flaws but unfortunately it didn't have any "wow" factor for us. Stored in my cellar, decanted two hours before drinking with dinner and it was just okay. Simple nose, some raspberry notes, smooth and short finish. Another bottle where pro reviews didn't match my experience.

    March 25, 2017 - Found my notes. Decanted for 1 hour. Medium red color, clear with no sediment. On nose, red raspberry, bright cherry, glycerin, lavender. On palate, raspberry, glycerin, cherry primarily. Medium body, high acidity - great balance and a long finish with some tannins noticeable but well integrated. 93-94 range. Loved this.
