    October 24, 2014 - Nose: intense, very ripe dark fruits, jammy, coffee, licorice
    Taste: full bodied, medium acidity, medium+ tannins, blackberry, mullberry, lots of coffee, licorice, jammy, slightly unbalanced, needs time

    October 18, 2014 - no doubt about it; this is big wine with a bit of heat, roasted berries, coffee grounds and soil on the nose, big bold fruit, juicy, dark berries, herbs, bing cherries and chocolate unwinds on the palate, a nice match with beef tacos, a good wine at a great price

    October 18, 2014 - Coffee, chocolate and bacon fat on the nose. Rich black fruit and more of the bacon, and an herby soil note, with solid tannic structure and earthy minerality. Very nice and drinking perfectly right now.

    September 28, 2014 - BlackBlueBerry punchyouintheface fruits backed by dry minerality, tannin, acid and characteristic (?) (I mean ?) white wood ash aromas. With time... characteristic mourvedre things emerge... but the style is M0-dern.

    Compared to the 2011... fruit is punch you in the face excessive. However.... white wood ash in the nose takes a backseat. Acid, check. Tannic backbone, check. Oak.. on the dancefloor. Blackberry, blueberry... ash... less than 2011... and oh, a little barnyard, a little leather, a little blood, a whack! of minerality. I'll say... this is a crowd pleaser, if you're crowd tends to -not- overthink. And.. it needs a PunchYouInTheFace-er food than 2011.
    Think Berkshire pork crusted with coriander, sage, mustard, white pepper, cumin, and... friends. Grilled. Yah.

    Oh, btw... it's improved by blending equal parts with 2011, in order to balance all the present fruit with some ash.

    In time, however, the '11 & '12 may sort themselfs out seperately (I said 'selfs) and all the fruit may carry into..... I dunno... I had a really really really old CA mataro once.... and it didn't suck.
