    September 25, 2014 - Opened by TLV for his daughter's birthday and paired with Korean spiced lamb chops. Notes of cedar, plum, black currants and dusty earth. Medium-bodied and completely integrated, featuring flavors of black fruit, herbs and licorice. Wonderfully balanced, finishing with good length.

    September 25, 2014 - Opened at Anvil for April's birthday. Showing no signs of visible age with an inky dark color throughout. Plum notes with a hint of green pepper and herbs. Elegant finish with fully integrated tannins.

    August 26, 2013 - Birthday Celebration (Del Frisco - Chicago IL): Brief note. Very fat and lush, still mostly fresh, but not well centered.

    July 1, 2013 - Shafer Hillside Select Vertical Tasting (Switzerland): Brick color. Malt and Vermouth in the Nose. Quite medicinal in flavor with only a bit of fruit left. This wine is past its prime.

    April 22, 2013 - Right at the end of its life - wonderful wine still with lively fruit and deep, rich flavors
