December 15, 2016 - Good but not great. Smooth and balanced. Pleasant. But no wow factor. Think is fading. Time to drink up

November 30, 2016 - Dark ruby color, dense body, rich blackberry flavor with a hint of chocolate, soft tannins, long finish. Terrific.

May 1, 2016 - No sign of ageing judging on the the dark purple color without any fading on the edge. Dark raspberry and grape candy at first on the nose, but with some air, fresher blackberries and cassis popping out. Some pepper and licorice. No hint of 14.9% alcohol content. A baby with tannin structure still a bit aggressive, but great layer of fruits and minerals. A bit short on the finish.
