    October 18, 2014 - Robust and full bodied, this probably would have been much better maybe a year ago. Raisin and alcohol on the nose; prune on the palate and finish, with some hints of chocolate.

    July 3, 2014 - Maybe a little over the hill. Fruit was not as pronounced as I had hoped, but still quality.

    April 18, 2014 - Nice full nose, good ruby color a lot of tannin right out of the bottle that soften up nicely with some air. I let it warm up and breathe for about an hour. It does carry a bit of a currant/raisin fruit flavor that then carries over to a nice finish.
