November 21, 2016 - No decanting and not really needed. Too rich and young still
Much like 8 months ago ( Papies 91) the wine is still at that dark and muscular phase but in not in anyway harsh. Ripe, oaky dynamics, mocha, light vanilla, smoky side. Serious fruit depth and albeit very forward felt in balance and had an elegance to it. Obviously one needs to like that fruit forward side to enjoy it. Good 91 for now .1 person found this helpful Comment

October 3, 2016 - Tasted with and without decant. Quite "constructed" in the sense that it was clearly too much of everything. Young and fresh are perhaps the most positive description I could give, but that impression only lasted until facing the bitter and harsh tannins. Disappointing.

March 9, 2016 - Opened and served. Not decanted and to be honest at this stage it doesn't need it. The wine is too young and fresh for any evolution.
Dark purple in color, glossy, muscular but not harsh. Obviously the ripeness is on the high level and so is extraction and to some part the oak although it didn't feel overpowering albeit it does have a good helping(the oak that is). Rich, firm and well made. Very young for sure but to be honest felt like in a good place and was quite enjoyable. One needs to like a bit the fruit forward style but a very good wine. 91-92 and with promise.2 people found this helpful Comment

December 15, 2015 - Generously gifted secretly, this wine was popped and poured; decanted immediately, and followed over 5 hours
A curveball relative to my narrow palate; this wine had larger than life aromas of red fruit, toasty oak, wet tobacco. A large wine on the palate, it coated the senses with a red/musty leafy tobacco oaky blanket supported by soft forgiving tannins. Finished long full and delicious.
Paired beautiful with beast stew made with a 2006 Havens Merlot. My guest's eyes popped and stared at the glasses. Lots of murmuring at the table, and it wasn't stew or homemade bread...
Thank you Mark.
