September 7, 2013 - Late summer gathering with friends.: Dark purple. Really nice nose of flowers and black cherry. Remarkable fruit on the palate with hints of mineral. Tannins well integrated. Wished for a longer finish, but really nice wine. WOTN for me.

July 15, 2013 - Smokey nose with black cherry flavor profile. Somewhat chocolately over time. Mineral. Lots of layers and complexity. I question the qpr at $175.

February 3, 2013 - Palate coating--rich with tons of candied cherry and hints of tobacco coming through along with fantastic structure. A joy to drink. Still humming nicely on day 2 with a bit more minerality poking out on the nose.

November 17, 2012 - Great wine. A little expensive though
October 2, 2012 - A little different than the last bottle but no better and in fact less going on...almost red water. I poured the last of it out after 6 hours in a decanter. Based on everyone elses reviews, either these are bad bottles or UPS killed them on the way here last February.
