November 8, 2015 - Served this bottle along with a bottle of Emilio Moro 2011 Malleous at a neighbor's house for dinner. Double decanted both wines about 2-1/2 hours before serving. As with previous bottles of the Psi, it was still a bit closed in with considerable underlying fruit of plums, blackberries, touch of wood, and moderate, round tannins. Still a very good wine, but I don't know when it is going to fully open up. The wine advocate (Gutierrez) recommends drinking by 2020, but we will see.

October 22, 2015 - Dark red. Dark fruit, cherries and smoke ( or are we sitting too close to the wood grill at Nash!?). Sweet and full dark fruit flavours, perfumed, without heaviness. Med length finish. Too bad we didn't decant. Quite lovely, especially for the price.

October 11, 2015 - Very jammy and sweet nose. Dark berries with red liquorice. Thankfullly on the palate it is a little more serious. Nice structure and tannins that are slightly round, dark chocolat. 88 for the overall balance but too 'sexy' for me.

October 7, 2015 - Double decanted this wine about an hour before serving. Nose was closed in but initial flavors of intense fruit (plums, blackberries, hint of spice), some complexity in the mid-range, but relatively short finish. This wine needs several hours of breathing to serve at its best and is still developing. Should be more interesting in a year or two, but uncertain about the longevity of this wine. Gutierrez from the Wine Advocate suggest drinking by 2017, but based on this bottle, I would think longer.
Much better the second day. The nose had opened up, followed by intense fruit, and tannins were almost completely dissipated. Good acid balance in the mid-range and finish. Altogether a much nicer wine. This suggests the need for several hours of breathing before serving.
