    June 16, 2014 - Fruit still showing well. Strawberry and bright red cherry.

    May 4, 2014 - Not sure if my bottle was over the hill or somehow bad, but it followed. Botella of the same vintage, and the Botella was better in every respect.

    December 28, 2013 - Similar comments to April 2011. Large format bottle so the wine has aged so well.

    November 2, 2013 - A nice garnet coloring with still a hint of youthful purple. This was wonderful with the tannins having faded, although still lurking in the background. Lots of red fruit notes, particularly raspberries and cherry accompanied by a hint of earthiness. A well integrated wine that is probably approaching its peak, but no rush to drink.

    November 2, 2013 - Deep, dark garnet in color. Full, forward and attractive nose of ripe red fruit aromas of cherries, strawberries, raspberries & plums with lovely secondary notes of earthy & herbal overtones, minerals, a touch of anise, cola, some spices, vanilla and a hint of cedar. Medium-full bodied with a very good concentration of developed & well-integrated, smooth, rich, ripe fruit flavors of cherries, raspberries, blueberries & plums, with spices, cola/sassafras, minerals, cedar and some earthiness. Smooth lingering finish. Drinks quite well at present but has the depth, fruit & structure to last longer and may even develop further.
