    June 6, 2015 - Still quality and still missing some complexity to rival the best CNDPs. Personally I'd hold these to see if that comes with more cellar time, but if you're a skeptic of the house/style, drink em now

    April 5, 2015 - Very fruit forward with big notes of cherry jolly rancher and boysenberry. Fun wine!

    February 21, 2015 - Lots going on here. Hits hard. Intensity, complexity, appropriate amplitude.

    December 25, 2014 - Drinking extremely well tonight. Blueberries, blackberries, anise, eucalyptus and pine, still enough acid to balance. Great finish to the Christmas lineup.
