    March 13, 2017 - consistent with notes of 10/5/2014 - drinking very well right now.

    March 6, 2017 - Ripe black cherry and earthy aromas and flavors on the rich palate with hints of oak and spice culminating in a tasty finish. Enjoy in the near term as I don't see this one as a cellar candidate.

    February 12, 2017 - cherry and red fruit in the nose, showing some spice--cola notes to the body, lots of fruit with still firm tannins, great balance. Good finish. Had opened for 2 hours before drinking and changed a little in the glass. Still would give this a few years, but showing well now.

    February 5, 2017 - Super Bowl wine, helped soften the first half blow.

    All-pro wine, deep red (New England cranberries), loads or dark red fruit (ripe cherry, raspberry), vanilla, hints of spice, finish lingers.

    January 21, 2017 - Fabulous Pinot. Very nice nose of cherry cola. Good acidity with good fruit. Very long finish. Very well balanced.
