    June 8, 2014 - Still dark and brooding. Nose of red cooked fruit. Wood is integrated. In a really good spot for a on the spot consumption.

    January 4, 2014 - Drinking pretty well. Needed 30 mins to 1 hour to open up. Fruit, earth and leather on the nose. Nice finish with modest acidity. Not a lot of jaminess/sugar so I would say it has a lot of the CA style on the nose and some Rhone aspects on the finish (lacking some of the over ripe sugar).

    November 30, 2013 - Drank w/ buffalo carpaccio and grilled lamb in Beaver Creek. Beautiful straight out of the bottle, did not decant but opened nicely over the next hour. Shy nose. Dark fruits and some spice, nice texture. Delicious now.
