    November 16, 2014 - Wow. What a treat. Two hour slow decant was the only mistake I made opening this as it needed a good 4 hours in my opinion. Halfway through dinner this baby was singing. Beautiful notes of Red and Dark berries, chocolate, vanilla and a bit of tar. Acid and tannins were right on point. This was a great wine, but make no mistake, this has a long life ahead of it and should be cellared for another few years. My second bottle will hibernate for a while.

    August 22, 2014 - Beautiful deep purple without a sign of age. Looks way young. Nose starts slow but hits hard with plum, blackberry and some black licorice. Soft mouth. Palate has nice fruit. Long finish with good acidity (food friendly), dark fruit and dark cocoa. Balanced. Liked it a lot but I thought it lacked some secondaries and finished a tiny bit hot for a higher score. Young. 2014-2025?
