    January 3, 2015 - Loads of fruit- so so yummy. If you like the fruit forward style this could be for you.

    December 28, 2014 - One of my favorite wines in the cellar - perhaps the best QPR. Stunning nose of ripe berries perfumed with violets, lavender, lanolin and spices. Medium weight and color is a deep magenta. The palate shows perfect balance of acidity, fruit ripeness and refined tannins with flavors of raspberry, blackberry, mocha, subtle white pepper and star anise. Drinking fantastic now and will continue to do so for the next 4 or 5 years.

    December 8, 2014 - Been drinking these, in multiple vintages, for awhile now and one thing is certain . . . . They need plenty of air to show their best. We've taken to decanting, then pouring back into bottle and vacuuming until the following night. Besides opening the nose it rounds out the mouth feel from sharp angularity to rich & full.

    November 21, 2014 - I'm deeply ambivalent. This is modern and massive and monolithic. Sweet oak and vanilla somewhat overpower the ripe red cherry and blueberry at this point. Cotton candy and sturdy tannins lead to a long, lingering finish hinting at a bit more. Could age into something a bit more graceful, perhaps, if the oak integrates more. This will be a polarizing wine, but I have to say the combination of concentration and value @ sub $40 is impressive. Complexity isn't the only virtue in wine, but this does tire the palate a bit. Not rating this, but mid 70s to mid 90s are theoretically appropriate, given one's preferences.

    November 15, 2014 - Super muted that was not consistent with previous bottles. Good nose but lacking depth. Seemed like it wanted to break out but never did. May just be in a stale state. Will probably hold other bottles for a bit.
