April 27, 2016 - This coming along really nicely - well-integrated now but still plenty of tannin and fruit. Different obviously, but has some of the character of mid-tier BDX with some age on it, some power but smooth too, some similarity in the arc of how the phenols are decomposing. Good now and this wine could go a while longer, resolve a little more and gain some earthier aspects.

January 31, 2016 - Color: Beautiful dark purple with thick viscous legs
Nose: Intense... lots of dark, ripe fruit. Spicy with black pepper; some tobacco and leather
Body/flavor: Full bodied; complex flavors of ripe dark fruit and blackberries; tannins present but not overwhelming. Despite 14.3% ABV, alcohol not apparent. Petite Sirah characteristics show through. Has time.
Finish: lingering aftertaste.
Paired with slow cooked, spicy brisket! Definitely matched the food!

August 23, 2015 - The fruit is going already... not a wine for lying down for more than a couple of years IMO. Actually for $50Cdn there are better alternatives out there.
