    September 14, 2014 - Dark and jammy. Plenty of time left for this bottling.

    August 2, 2014 - Still youthful and complex. What a great wine. Lots of secondary notes on the nose. Complex on the palette. Drink or hold. Good stuff!

    March 14, 2014 - Dark, still tannic, enough fruit, nicely made. Drink the next bottle in 2015 or 2016.

    January 17, 2014 - Was expecting something a little less decayed. Not using the word decayed in a bad way, it was just more over the hill than I'd have thought for such a structured wine. The cork was a shambles, and it was a tad musty. Otherwise it was a lovely expression of mountain fruit at a ripe old age. Dark fruit, cedar, and what can maybe be described as tomato vine or dry spice, or forest floor. If you have it, please, drink it!!! Now. That' an order.

    (VIADER RED) #4; VaynerPAZZZ (on QPR); NOSE-vegetal, broccoli, asparagus, English peas; TASTE-nice tangy aspect, zesty, very green and thin on the finish, lighter, elegant, aspects of strawberry & cherry juice, like a solid Bordeaux, more of a $30 bottle though; GV-90
