    October 14, 2014 - Robust bouquet of dark red fruits and faint hints of burnt wood and smoke. Cherry pie and blackberry on the palate with a very fruit forward profile. Soft tannins. Would have guessed this was a new world "crowd pleaser"

    October 2, 2014 - I liked it when I opened it. It was better the next day. I have one more bottle. I will let it open for a few hours next time. I bought it on WTSO so the price was right.

    September 15, 2014 - Let it breathe! 1-2 hours and bam this becomes exceptional.

    August 25, 2014 - 2nd night score. Really developed nicely over 24 hours. Suggest decanting or having more day two.

    August 14, 2014 - I'm struggling to understand the high WS score. This is thin and not very interesting. Seems light for the blend. I'm not sure this will improve. Might as well hold and see how it is in a couple of years. Worst case, I can cook with it. At best, this needs food and is an everyday wine.
