    July 15, 2017 - Surprising amount of clove and cinnamon on the nose. Nice complexity. Decent weight on the palate. Medium finish.

    June 9, 2017 - Drinking well now, but lacking a depth of complexity to merit an even higher score. Deep berry fruit in the nose and flavor, blueberries, cherries, and raspberries. Medium body and a medium to long finish.

    May 22, 2017 - a bit flabby on entry but still packing a youthful finishing kick - can't see much if any reward for holding any longer

    April 17, 2017 - Still drinking well. Should let it open up for at least an hour.

    July 29, 2016 - Deep burnt red when opened and SUPER tight! Looked like a 1980 Bordeaux. 30 minutes later it was a deep purple and attend to open up. In about it was spectacular! Big tannins, sweet and sour all in one. Great wine.
