    September 26, 2016 - Still garnet and opaque. Aromas of dusty, earthy black fruits. Deep, rich, mouth-coating flavors, hot from high alcohol, hot, lingering aftertaste. On the coarse and heavy side, rather than round and elegant. Perfectly ready, despite moderate tannin. I don't think holding it longer will benefit.

    September 2, 2016 - Dark red in color w/ big legs. Beautiful nose and palate of red and black fruits. Balanced and smooth palate with no tannin. Not complex, but just delicious from the first glass to last.

    July 31, 2016 - Small taste this afternoon, brief note from memory. Good cross-section of red and black berry and cherry that comes across as ripe on nose and palate, but also well balanced with a refined structure on finish. moderate depth and length.

    July 26, 2016 - Tuesday Night Double Blind Tasting, $50+ (Bin 75): Has some funk on the nose. Darker color, but not too dark. Definitely has some alcohol. On the palate, baby aspirin is there, telltale CdP notes. A little riper in style than I like, but still overall pretty good. In its window, don't see it getting better.
