    May 25, 2016 - A plush Merlot-based blend that blends Napa fruit with classic style. Dark purple in color, full in body, and an inviting nose of blackberry and charcoal. Round tastes of sweet cherry, blueberry, licorice, and gravel, with mouth-coating tannins. Blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Malbec. 14.7% alcohol. It takes an hour or two to shed its angles, but it is quite compelling when it does. Drink in next year or two.

    February 27, 2015 - Nice nose, immediately approachable, soft on the pallet.

    Lots of berry with a long finish. still have 3 left and will try again in another 6 months or so.

    November 20, 2014 - Consistent with 1/7/14 notes. I believe even more strongly now that it's time to drink our last bottle.

    November 12, 2014 - Decant. Opened two hours before dinner which wasn't enough. Sat on counter overnight in bottle and much better next day
