    February 25, 2017 - Round and rich and ready to go. Lots of sweet fruit. Good balance. Carries the alcohol well.

    December 30, 2016 - Bordeauxlike but still something different - but very good. Like a fine graves with a tuscan touch.

    December 28, 2016 - Very solid Bordeaux imposter, complete with a touch of green pepper for added charm. Drinking well though possibly not quite at peak yet.

    June 26, 2016 - OMG. This was my 5th of 6 bottles that I have drank over the past decade and this wine is singing! Copious aromas of dark fruits and a bit of chocolatey mocha. Perfectly balanced now. Lusciously rich and complex with silky tannins and a lingering finish that makes you keep wanting more. Each trip back to the glass delivers new layers of aromas and flavors. What a treat! Decant for 1-2 hours before enjoying with a hearty meal.
