    May 19, 2015 - Second bottle went down tonight. Just as lovely as the first. This wine is showing much more green pepper and clove. Rather vegetal, but not over the top. Finished with a 60+ second finish. Beautiful wine. This wine has aged rather flawlessly, but I'm honestly not sure it really has the depth to last more than a few years from now. Drinking ***WELL*** tonight. A great accoutrement to dinner and after hours wind-down. Drink now to 2018.

    January 28, 2015 - Big brooding dark fruit wine - even after 30 decant. Dark fruit and licorice at the start to a even finish and round mouth feel. Light finishing notes of earth and cedar

    November 23, 2013 - Like this wine. Great blend. Probably will get much better with age.

    February 8, 2013 - A dark berry nose, with licorice and tobacco leaf. The palate is bright and inviting, with raspberry and strawberry complimenting the blackberry. Finishes with a mix of fruit and herbs, providing complexity. The mix here is unusual and enjoyable.

    December 25, 2012 - This wine is amazing. Great balance, fruit and depth. Every time we open the blender boy I'm reminded of how great it is.
