    March 16, 2014 - Ruby core, bricking at the edges. Intense, savory, Bing cherry bouquet of leather, pencil lead, and cinnamon bark. The fully integrated palate flaunted, a smooth texture, soft tannins, black and red fruit, balsamic vinegar, umami, and mocha dust on the long finish. This was well-balanced and delicious.

    July 4, 2009 - Still alive and kicking... Cork exploded as I attempted to remove, had to push down a good 50% of it into the bottle. Color showed the bricking on the outer edge of a gracefully aged wine. Even though the bottling shows 8% cab franc, it really showed it's colors with strawberry, cherry, bell pepper, violet on the nose. Mouthfeel was a little thin but came with expressive cherry, smoke, some earth tones and a little more dried herbs. Finish had no tannins to speak of but a hint of acidity and lasted a good 15 - 20 seconds.
