    November 3, 2014 - PNP. Nose gets a little perfumed at 1 hour. Still olive tapenade, but very good with dinner. I hope these last long enough for me to see what comes over time.

    October 25, 2014 - Black to deep purple edges. Nose of Olive Tapenade (first time for this for me) with a bit of blackberry. Rich, ripe with a nice finish. Very good with roast beef sandwiches and cheese. Note from memory so no score. We both liked this. Glad we have 8 more left. Will be interested in seeing how this develops over the next 2-3 years.

    October 4, 2014 - In a great place right now. Deep, smoky and intense.

    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?
