    July 4, 2015 - Beautiful dark red color. Nose was a bit muted. Had some blackberry, cherry, tobacco. Palate was all over in a good way. Very complexed. Tannins where great and had a very long finish. If the nose was better this would have been above 95.

    December 27, 2013 - Drank over three days. Awesome nose with plums, coffee, mint, and berries. The palate is striking for its clean acidity and bright red, juicy fruit. Seamless and mouthwatering. I am partial to the deeper, darker fruit of the sigaro but I really like this as well.

    September 29, 2013 - I've been drinking a lot of Fairchild lately and last night I had dinner with someone whose love for these wines started at the same time as mine so Fairchild it was again. This bottle had the most stunning nose not only of any Fairchild I've ever had but of any wine this year. Hands down. A mix of potpourri, vanilla, purple flowers and a hint of smoke. The nose did not change for an hour and a half after an hour decant. The palate was bright, fresh and medium in weight with fresh plums and hints of baking spices. Velvet in feel. If the palate had held up to the nose this wine would've cracked my top ten ever. Sadly it did not. A great wine none the less.
