    October 11, 2014 - Lot's of dark fruit and well integrated tannins with a touch of pepper. Really enjoyed this wine.

    July 3, 2014 - Beautiful darkish fruit with lovely and generous blueberry highlight on the nose leaps from the decanter; decadent Napa fruit with a touch of white pepper/mineral on the palate. Delicious, but serious...although tannins beginning to round nicely since last taste over a year ago. Decant carefully; a generous amount of fine sediment needs to be left behind before you pour this with abandon! Wonderful...

    March 20, 2014 - Decanted 3 hours. Deep purple color with slight haze. Aromatic cassis, toasted oak & pine tar. Full-bodied, high, round tannins. Intense flavors of violets, black sugar plums, tar, stewed plums, black cherry & raspberry. Long, biting finish of raw baking chocolate. Paired well with beef brisket. Will improve over next 3-4 years. Makings of a truly outstanding juice!

    March 10, 2014 - Beautiful, deep, rich wine exuding rich blackberry, plum, other "blue" fruits, white pepper, and good tannic structure. I drank this over the course of 2 days and day 2 was, as expected, much more open and complex. Tannins were a little on the heavy side on day 1, but much better resolved by day 2. My suggestion is to hold for at least 3 years, by which time, this should be gorgeous.
