    April 13, 2017 - Thoroughly excellent upon opening. Surprised that it started to turn by the end of the meal.

    March 31, 2017 - I decanted for 1 hour. It was so silky smooth. The nose and palette was delicious. This wine is drinking wonderful now, but will age several more years.

    February 25, 2017 - Fully mature, with rich black fruits, earth, and roasted coffee notes. The tannins are still providing a nice sense of structure, but I wouldn't hold this looking for more upside; I think we're at peak.

    January 1, 2017 - Decanted for 6 hours.

    Fruit forward and tasted like Napa Valley floor cab. Enticing nose of red fruits. The alcohol is still very hot and detracts from the finish.

    Tannins are 6/10

    January 1, 2017 - Medium ruby red. A bit of heat on the nose with notes of dark berries and slight earthiness. Thick stewed berries on the palate with moderate tannins (6/10). Pretty well integrated and full bodied. Excellent wine at its peak for a couple more years. Drink till 2018.
