May 30, 2016 - With tenderloin steak, roast potatoes, asparagus.
Very dark crimson, opaque.
Nose shows plum and cherry, a bit muted (bottle opened only 25 minutes before pouring - probably needed a bit more time).
Dry, acid and tannin present but in balance. Cherry and black pepper. A big, full wine, but still a gentleman about it.

February 29, 2016 - Popped and poured.
This has improved with more time in the bottle. The tannins have smoothed out. Flavors were slightly muted (still good), but emerged more after some air time.
Flavors of cherry, spice and vanilla. Smooth tannins.
Starting to come into a good drinking range, especially with a little air time first.

January 26, 2016 - Nice density; dark brooding fruit; great with lamb chops and goes down easy considering it's stuffing. Threw a good amount of sediment.
January 10, 2016 - Seems like a wine made from very ripe fruit, heavily extracted. I'm at the middle of a case opened and tasted periodically over the past 3 years. At this point, the wine appears to be in a state of significant transition where it is fairly rapidly depositing or polymerizing it's ripe and dusty, bordering on dirty, tannins. I too find a lack of sufficient acidity to balance this wine and potentially carry it through to the resolution of these significant tannins. Fruit is there but muted, round and bordering on overripe. We shall see. For now, I am less optimistic than at the point 2 years ago when I bought up numerous bottles of the 2010 vintage. Hopefully this will clarify into a sublime bottling given a decant off the sediment, but certainly not now.2 people found this helpful Comment

December 3, 2015 - Opened on the recommendation of a member here. This wine has a great nose and a predominate round muted fruit palate. The acid and tannins are overshadowed by the fruit. I let this breathe for about an hour and drank it over two hours or so. Once the wine presented as written above, it stayed there. This has Phillipe Cambie's fingerprints all over it. That is not bad not good, but it is his statement. New world, not too complex, pleasing many, exciting few. I have a few more that I will open sooner than later because I don't see long(er) term in this bottle. Having something like bolognese? Open this, the acid in the tomatoes makes up for that missing characteristic here.2 people found this helpful Comment
