May 25, 2015 - Nice earth and must nose. Sour fruit, wood, tobacco palate. Good balance - very well structured at this point. I would say it will keep a bit but it is peaking now.

June 20, 2013 - stewed red fruits, sour plum, cherry, cherry kirsch, dried herbs, dill and hints of oak; medium body, sour cherry and plum on the palate with good balance and long finish. Very nice, a little flamboyant, but quite enjoyable.

December 24, 2011 - Very clean, crisp temperanillo made in the older style. A grand wine. It seems I liked it better than I did in Sept. This bottle seemed smooth this time around.
