    June 28, 2014 - 4th Saturday Brown Bagger (Sue & Mike's): Garnet color. Aromas of chalk, chocolate and black currants. Full-bodied and dense, with chalky tannins and flavors of chocolate and black fruit with a spice-tinged finish. Guessed Napa cab sauv. 89+ pts.

    June 5, 2014 - Dark purple/plumb. Tannins still evident but not overpowering. Not quite as good as some other vintages of this brand, but still very enjoyable. 08' is legendary....#1 WS, but as a result overpriced. Try the 07' and 09'. Nearly as good at less than half the price.

    May 19, 2014 - SAme TS an Tanzer on this dense, saturated beauty. Tannins are really there in day II behind the fruit, perfectly balanced coming on to ten years. This has enough fruit and balanced acids tannins that i think iy has some nice years ahead. oak really in the background now.

    March 23, 2014 - Earthy, full bodied, black pepper and tons of black fruit. Smooth on the palate with a long finish. Great with steak

    February 9, 2014 - Drank with a steak. Nice wine, the alcohol and tannins have mellowed considerably. Almost light in comparison. Very quaffable. Should drink this wine in the near term.
