    December 28, 2014 - Reddish-brown body with bricking; brownish rim; a little cloudy. Black cherry, blackberry, tar, black pepper, leather, sous bois, floral scents, minerals. Good structure and acid. Tannins not completely resolved. Although it seems to still be in the beginning of its drinking plateau, it appears to have a few years left before its apogee. A long peppery finish. A great pairing with Italian meat sauce and pasta. A better food wine at this point.

    December 3, 2014 - Similar to previous. Popped, breathed in bottle one hour, ready to go.

    September 14, 2014 - Mature, fully integrated, and perfectly balanced. Delicious. No need to wait any longer, this is ready to be enjoyed now.

    March 15, 2014 - Rich, silky, and quite big. Still loaded with structure, with plenty of tannin and acid; struck me as fairly young and primary, suggesting that earlier drinking windows seriously underestimated this wine's longevity.
