December 21, 2014 - Good balance of red fruit with cocoa and a bit of tobacco. The oak has calmed down, but there are still notes of toast and vanilla. This is definitely not a pnp, and needs at least a couple hours of decant time to reveal its nuances and more complex layers.

October 9, 2014 - Very good and up to the WA rating. Decanted for an hour......need to do so for a little longer. Was a little better the second night. In a great drinking zone right now.
