    August 27, 2016 - Stars with oak and cedar on the nose, initial flavor profile of blackberry and menthol with chewy, dry tannins. Even after two hours and double decanting this bottle it's still favoring oak, alcohol and tannin over fruit, with a dry and bitter finish. Disappointing.

    August 4, 2016 - The wine is quite nice but restrained, almost reticent, in terms of giving up the depth of flavors I anticipate from Quilceda Creek wines. On opening it was so tight that mostly what was present was alcohol and tannin - not attractive. I decanted by pouring through Vinturi and about a half hour later back through Vinturi into the bottle. Over the course of the evening, the wine unfolded but slowly. At about two hours after back in the bottle it was at its best - black and overripe blue fruit, chocolate, a bit of candied blue fruit on the finish carried by fine-grained tannins. If there is any flaw here it is prominent alcohol in a port-like presentation. Long finish. A good wine but I expected better.

    June 23, 2016 - Smokey black and blue fruit palate. This is day 2 and this wine still seems very tight. Best level of complexity (some floral notes) in the group of wines, needs lots more time.

    June 17, 2016 - Fruit has surprisingly faded since last tasting, showing much more bottle age, plum flavors, a little hot, lacks depth and richness, very round and integrated, ample finish
