    September 20, 2014 - This was doing very well - lots of pepper, meat, and fruit with a great acid backbone to hold it all together. Went very well with tri tip. It may improve, but why wait?

    June 20, 2014 - Dense & chewy. Black coffee. Some blueberry, mud, earth. Could use some age.

    May 12, 2014 - Dark red and black fruit. Great acid, nice bit of meatiness and smoke. Minerality and tannins are present as well, lending a nice other layer to the wine. Tasty wine, and will look forward to the next bottle. If you don't mind the tannin, this is drinking really well right now.

    February 26, 2014 - Surprisingly intense and complete. Violet, smoke, black pepper, raw beef, vanilla, black/blueberry. Very aromatic. Smoky/gaminess comes on strong but mellows out after an hour or so. A little gritty and not much on the finish, but I'm with arch57 re: case-worthiness at $15. Twist the top early and let it breathe any weeknight.
