March 19, 2016 - Wine is really singing, currants and berries burst out of the glass. Finishes with a hint of green pepper.

January 1, 2016 - This started out a little flat just P & P. A couple hours later it had opened and was rich and deep with a gorgeous earthiness and a hint of wet cardboard that, oddly, enhanced its flavor profile. But, after dinner, 9 hours open, it was beautiful. Dark, earthy, black fruit, forest floor and altogether vibrant. Long finish. No flaws.

November 28, 2015 - Needs a good two hour decant. Wonderful balance and structure. Deep, dark cherry and tart raspberries that at right up front. That mellowed as the night went on. Favors blended nicely with some time. Some oak but more minerals. Nice finish with still noticeable tannins. This could be great in another couple years.

November 25, 2015 - Just Outstanding. Decant for a couple of hours and the complexity just starts to show up as the fruit balances out. Could easily mistake for a more modern Bordeaux if tasted blind.

November 13, 2015 - Dark color, popped and poured, showing notes of eucalyptus and black fruit. Quite tannic; black and blue fruit and plenty of vanilla too. Becomes more red-fruited as it sits. Guessed Cab Sauv blend from Napa. Still young, but with plenty of potential. Thanks for sharing, Tim.
