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.

December 11, 2015 - The color shines deep purple. The wine is very well balanced, easy to drink, long aftertaste. Blackcurrant, cherries, mild oak, spices....Perfect to drink now.

November 9, 2015 - Lovelly colour offering a medium bodied translucence with a bright strawberry rim. A wine for early summer flavoured initially by young strawberry transcending and layering through to a chalky dry tannin. Three hours later the bouquet opened and the previously distinct layers integrated seamlessly.

September 26, 2015 - 45 min. decant. Ate with flank steak. Deep, dark purple color. A very dense, extracted wine. Incredibly expressive complex, perfumed nose, with notes of anise, rubber, black dirt, honey, and perhaps some mulling spices. Intense dark and blue fruit attack is lifted by fresh, tart acidity. Stewed plum is the predominant note through the mid-palette. Coarse-grained tannic backbone is firm, but also slightly sweet and pretty well integrated. Long, lingering finish lasts on the order of 20-30 seconds. Impressive in that it manages to be incredibly syrupy and intense without ever feeling heavy or weighty on the palette. It's hard to argue that this won't get even better with more cellar time, but it's absolutely beautiful right now nevertheless.
