    October 31, 2014 - This starts off nice, with a ripe, medium bodied layer of fruit. But the finish has notes with a dry, sour/tart cherry sensation in the end note that some people are going to like less than others. This is probably not a wine to age.

    October 20, 2014 - Very big nose of big dark fruits, oak, some spearmint and hints of floral. Very elegant on the palate with a silky long finish. I was pretty impressed with this showing.

    October 12, 2014 - The bouquet was a bit muted. Floral notes, hint of tobacco, some wood chips. Finish was great.

    September 29, 2014 - Intensely deep purple in the glass. Cassis, currant, cedar and tobacco. Very dark and brooding. Finishing with a bit of raisin. Delicious, but not a style for the timid.

  • ericindc Does not like this wine:

    September 18, 2014 - I appreciate the opportunity to drink this wine. This wine, however, is indicative of everything wrong with California wines. This was nearly impossible to drink. Overly extracted and massive. Frankly, i wanted to water this down. I don't see how this could age in any reasonable way. There is not a food in the world that would pair with this wine. Not rated.
