December 24, 2015 - Opened, not decanted, for two hours.
The wine looks inky colored. It smells like red currant, blackberry, stoniness and espresso. It tastes like chocolate. The body is medium/full. The wine finishes medium.

November 4, 2015 - Dark fruits, chocolate and smooth tannins. Very opulent with noticeable alcohol. Overall a nice wine but I need to be in the mood for such bold wine.

May 4, 2015 - Really good for the money. Not as good as the others. This had dark rich black fruit but that really is where it started to fall off from the others. Where you could taste the pencil shavings and touch of graphite the others had a medley of secondary flavors and aromas. This was completely solid though just not in the company of the others.
