    September 1, 2014 - Always fun to come and try a bottle with some age on it. This has matured nicely.

    March 3, 2013 - This was a 1.5 liter bottle, I opened it up 3 hours before we drank it. I aerated and decanted it. it was great.

    March 3, 2012 - Big and modern with obvious fruit and oak. A bit hot throughout. Not really my style preference.

    July 22, 2011 - Smooth and sexy. Loads of chocolate, cocoa, cassis, lavender. I had this about a year ago and think it's in its sweet spot right now and should cruise for a few more years. Very nice showing. 91+
