    May 9, 2016 - The score above is for what people who like super oaked nuclear bombs in a wine. This wine CONCENTRATE is so RICH that it can rival the best of them. Like a massive Cote Rotie, its thick enough to stand a fork in (wine wise), and the bourbon styled oak treatment is the cradle of all the sugar. Lots of baking spice, brown sugar, cassis, plums, and did I mention oak? I can drink this a couple of times a year, and thats it. Come to think of it, this is liquid dessert for me... Still battled with finishing it...Not for me, but I scored accordingly in fairness and respect to those who think this is what wine is all about. Still has tannins to last and improve a bit....Drink or Hold.

    August 28, 2015 - Pitch black body. Big nose of cassis, dark fruit, vanilla and spices. Expansive mouth, silky and balance. Long caudalice. Intoxicating wine.

    December 19, 2014 - Opulent, rich and sweet fruit. Coffee and moist dark earth notes, but the fruit really carries the day here. Straightforward and predictable.

    September 25, 2011 - 14.4% alcohol. 87% cabernet, 7% merlot, 6% cab franc. decanted, and followed in the glass for 2 hours. i 've experienced some bottle variation, but tonight the wine is spectacular. very supple tannin and a velvet finish that is rich and pure. intoxicating nose, and complex mid palate. super. drink now-2016.
