November 9, 2015 - Medium body. Smoky cherry nose. Dark cherry flavor. A bit cough syrupy. Good acidity. Maybe balances out in time??
October 12, 2015 - Very fruity yet quite complex . Still can wait another year or two before peaking.
February 14, 2015 - Some barnyard funk and petrol in the bouquet alongside rose petals. Not much depth, but the palate has some nice, sweet cherries, plums and rosemary notes that carry through to the finish. Last bottle of this vintage.
