    May 17, 2016 - Deep indigo color. Nose of moss and mushroom. Big, robust flavors that were mostly vegetal upon opening. Afte a couple of hours, the opened a bit to reveal a bit of fruit, chocolate and oak. Still needs more time.

    February 29, 2016 - Definitely has a lot of potential, but just not in a good state right now. There's a nice core of plum and rich black fruit, but also quite a bit of VA and alcohol upfront. Hopefully a few more years will allow it to settle down and find balance.

    July 20, 2015 - Somewhat plush with coffee, dark chocolate, spice and oaky accents. About a half a bottle left so I'll check back in tomorrow.

    April 11, 2015 - Deep indigo color. Dark nose of musty earth, pepper and clove. Heavy and brooding with dark fruit, coffee and crushed gravel on the palate. Still a bit tannic. Not sure when this will come around but does not appear ready quite yet.
