    September 15, 2013 - red, orange in color. sweet fruit, earth, oak, on the nose. cherry, blackberry, tobacco, cedar, tar, bitter cocoa, green pepper, on the palate. huge acid, medium tannins, on the finish.

    September 15, 2013 - one of the best in a 2000 Merlot blind tasting out of 7.

    December 31, 2012 - This wine is wonderful rounded with great flavors. After being stored in perfect cellar conditions since its release, the wine has aged perfectly.
    Easy to drink.

    November 1, 2012 - At the end that is what ls at stake. Still now a beautiful taste, smooth and round. Ruby taste elegant and low at accidity. Drink now.

    April 3, 2012 - Really nice. Very balanced. I'm also tempted to say easy to drink but that might get interpreted the wrong way- it has some nice solid body, but its age is just about perfect. Some vegitable flavors, some leather, but not too much.
