September 14, 2014 - Nice dark reddish purple
Green pepper, a bit of chocolate, a little heat, but nice vegetal flavors. A little leather mixed with cherry on the palette. Very soft wine. Low acid, heavy body. Tasty stuff.

June 21, 2014 - Took this to a party, so I was only able to drink one 4 ounce pour shortly after it was opened. Seems to be holding up reasonably well, although one taster said he thought it was past its prime. Nice nose, texture, and finish. Not as yummy as earlier vintages, but it showed all kinds of pleasant complexities - sage, cedar, fig, tobacco, etc. Probably time to drink up.

April 2, 2014 - Rich berries, smooth tannins. Slurpable goodness. No vegetal or green notes, but still clearly a franc. Very nice.
