    December 9, 2014 - Westchester Wine School - Premium Wine Tasting (Bar Lees, Mamaroneck, NY): Drank at WWS tasting. Medium red color, with some browning at the edges. Very generous nose of earth, mushrooms & other tertiary aromas. Though i couldn't find much fruit on the nose, there was sufficient red fruit on the palate. Tannins mostly resolved. Some spice & decent length. Nice wine, though nothing particularly memorable here (tho I did love the nose)>

    November 7, 2014 - Subtle earthy floral nose with mushrooms, garrigue and game. Started out fairly sweet with candied fruit palate, but 6 hours later the earthy character dominates. Nice tannic grip on the finish, with garrigue and game. Probably near the end of its lifespan.

    September 27, 2014 - Some debate on the night as to whether or not it was closed or simply over the hill and lacking complexity. I thought over the hill, others disagreed. At this point, a competent CdP, though perhaps more time in a decanter will change that.

    September 1, 2014 - Sweet fruit, mineral, earth and a hint of game. Really tasty. But need to drink soon as the weight of the wine is getting lighter.
