    April 27, 2014 - Va Va Va Voom. Dark, powerful and intense. Love.

    March 30, 2014 - Wow big wine, but still elegant. Deep dark purple in color. Dry, nice acidity, full body, black cherry, licorice, and pepper on palate. Great finish. A great wine. Big but elegant. Loved it.

    March 2, 2014 - Previous tasting notes apply. Wine is still tight with a slight roughness in the background of smoothness. Nevertheless, spectacular as is customary with Saxum wines.

    November 17, 2013 - Exceptionally good, with perhaps not quite the level of complexity I've come to expect with a Saxum wine.
