November 30, 2016 - In a really great place, especially with food. Lots of dark fruit with a savory undertone. The tannins have smoothed out a bit, but there's still plenty of structure to see it through several more years of fine drinking.

October 19, 2016 - Another home run! Dark red full body wine with excellent nose. Blackberry and cherry fruit filled your mouth. Nice finish. This wine will only get better over the next few years.2 people found this helpful Comment

March 30, 2016 - PnP, sampled, decanted for 2 hours prior to drinking. Definitely improved with decant!
Somewhat different from the 2009. This had more structure & malbec character. I preferred the 2009.
Very aromatic -- draws you in (although the taste is a step down from this lure!)
Luscious, full bodied merlot, juicy!, dried fruit, spice, tar, earth, bramble, with robust mouthfeel. Firm yet somewhat silky tannins.
Drank for wife's birthday.
