    February 13, 2016 - Drinking very nicely. Benefitted from about 30 min decant. Large wine, long finish. No need to keep holding this one.

    July 2, 2015 - This has some brettanomyces going on. Mild enough that only half our party noticed too much barnyard and bandaid, the rest noted only berries and fruit. But if you are sensitive to it, it is not very drinkable.

    March 1, 2015 - Lots of dark mountain fruit. Red berries and some blueberry. It was at its best about 3 hours after opening. Very well balanced. Nothing telling me that this has several years left, but it did take a while to come into its own. A little bit of spice, some earth, and wonderful mountain fruit.
