    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.

    October 18, 2015 - Has matured nicely. Better than I remember for previous bottles of this vintage.

    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.

    February 15, 2015 - deep nose dark fruit finish may improve with more time
