    November 4, 2015 - Amazingly delicious. Given the 'traveling' this wine went through in it's youth, it was suspect, but fortunately, it shined! Bought in Texas shortly after release, transfered to Phoenix and eventually Montana. Beautiful clear, dark garnet in color. Peppery and cherry nose. Rich, intense, yet elegant palate with lovely currant, blackberry, anise, and spice flavors. Slight tannins remain, great structure, long, clean finish. Well concealed oak and alcohol. Very fresh tasting and still youthful. So happy to have one more. Drink by 2020.

    May 1, 2015 - Open 5 hours then tasted blind by the group, consensus guess for age was 2007-2008. Beautiful nose of flowers, blackberries and licorice. Great structure - tannins and acid in balance. Core of pure black friuts and pretty spices. Great wine! 93+ points
