    September 7, 2014 - delicate flavors. Excellent balance, but I will be drinking most of my case within the next year

    February 6, 2014 - If you like a earthy Cabernet, this is it. Fruit was very subdued, but what was there was nice. Not sure if this will get better. I would say drink up.

    January 8, 2014 - One of their Library Releases. Popped and poured; synthetic cork (Supreme Cork??). Loads of beautiful dark fruit right out of the gate but the initial intensity wore off within the first ten minutes. While it didn't subside completely, it became very clear to me that this bottle was ready to drink. All of the tannins were soft as a goose down pillow and there are secondary characteristics showing: leather and decaying fruit. Nothing bad here but again, it's not going to "improve". If I had more, I would drink in the near term.

    September 5, 2013 - Fleshy black fruit greets you and leads you to a mineral bath, followed by mild but firm tannins. Paired with filet mignon and potatoes, the wine was a perfect compliment. Last bottle. Hoping WTSO will offer some soon
