    October 4, 2014 - Decanted for 1.5 hours. This is very full-bodied, almost like a vintage port. Has some raisin tones, feels over-ripe. This has a lot of depth, though a bit one-dimensional. This is drinking beautifully now, though it likely benefits from the decanting.

    April 13, 2014 - This is drinking beautifully right now...why wait? I believe right now it is at its apogee.

    See: m+ ruby-brick with garnet tones.

    Smell: Incredible complexity and depth, literally, I have a laundry list of aromas. Ready? Integrated layers of beef stew, pepper, fruitcake, cigar tobacco, plum, blackberry, dried blueberry, forest floor, cedar, chocolate ganache.

    Taste: M+ body, with a supple core. M- fully integrated, velvety tannins and medium acidity. It finishes long, yielding and boldly flavored, with more braised beef notes, spice and chocolate.

    If I were you, I wouldn't want to miss out on it at this stage....

    March 30, 2014 - 3 hour decant and enjoyed with asian barbecued chicken, creamy garlic risotto and crispy lemon asparagus. Some food wine this is. Floral, smoke, leather, rich berries, modest acidity and amazing complexity and balance.

    March 21, 2014 - One hour into decant this had searing acidity with very little fruit. Two and a half hours in, right in time for dinner, this was singing and proving to me it just needs a couple more years or a healthy amount of air. Tobacco, tar, flowers, integrated tannins and balanced acidity with just enough dark fruit. Aside from a slight punch of fruit after 3 hours on the finish this is a perfect example of 'old world' wine. Went perfect with a foal ragú.
