    August 31, 2014 - Rich, coating, with deep and dark cherry. Early at this point but accessible. Hold for now. Enjoy later. How can you lose? Sweet.

    May 7, 2014 - From 375 ml. Decanted 2 hours. A bit young, but starting to open up.

    March 14, 2014 - What to say.. Great nose: blackberry, blueberry, flowers, meat and a hint of leather. On the palate it's one dimensional: Full bodied, smooth and good tannins. But it's boring, so boring. After one glass I had enough, this is not the wine I like. Bob will love it probably. Annoying high and sharp alcohol on the tongue and your throat. Hard to score... I have to give it 90 points because it's solid and well made. But personally three or 4 points less because I don't like these types of wine.

    January 8, 2014 - Cellared since release. Perfect cork and fill. Dark red/purple to rim. Cassis, dark berries, tar on the nose, full body, ripe dark fruits, good balance, well-integrated oak much less prominent than last bottle, oak, smooth tannins, drinks well now and should hold for 5-10 years. Excellent.
