    August 13, 2013 - Nose was a bit reticent but opened up over time. Age has definitely mellowed the fruit here and everything is nicely integrated, if maybe a bit thin on the mid-palate. Finish is surprisingly robust with tannins that are clearly present but not astringent. I wouldn't want to leave too much longer in the bottle (2 years?) but beautiful now.

    June 9, 2013 - Decanted for a half-hour. Strong notes of cedar; rich; red and black currants; powdery, well-integrated tannins. In the slot.

    December 31, 2012 - The wine looks Purple colored. It smells like Red Currant, Blackberry, Lead Pencil, and Vanilla. It tastes like Cranberry, Red Currant, and Strawberry Jam. The body is Full. The wine finishes Long.

    June 26, 2012 - Tight nose when open but after 60 minute decanting the wine showed its true promise. Chalky tannins smoothed with some time, red garnet color coated the glass with beautiful long legs. Blueberries, cassis, touch of red cherry, and a lite touch of dark chocolate on the 30 second finish. Stunning offering, trying the next bottle in a few years when it should reach full maturity.
