    July 16, 2014 - Probably drank too early. Decanted over 90 minutes. Lots of black fruits but still showing a lot of tannin and alcohol. Will old several years before trying again.

    May 24, 2014 - Surprisingly refined given its zany 16.5% alcohol level. Delivers an array of enjoyable aromatic/flavor notes - blueberries, toasted oak, and dark red fruit. Flavor-driven for sure. Delivers on what it's supposed to be: A full-throttle tough guy wine with underlying depth and finesse. Paired wonderfully with an au poivre burger.

    September 7, 2013 - Very smooth, nose not a big as one expects from PS. At 16.5% alc., no heat on the nose or palate. Nose opened up with some air, but the bottle was finished pretty quickly as I was sharing with 5 others. Ready now - not sure it will improve much, but should last many years.

    August 28, 2013 - I'm rating this immediately after opening -- there is a lot here, but it's not integrated yet. Perhaps it will open up after a little while, but otherwise I think this needs a few more years in the bottle.
