    May 16, 2016 - A very tasty dark fruit bomb that has some complexity to it with sweet vanilla Oak, dried herbs and hints of camphor. The sweetness and density of this smooth wine hides the alcohol on the palate, but the alcohol hits you pretty hard thereafter. Go gently with this wine that still has few top years left in it.

    December 11, 2015 - The Cab came through more than the Syrah on this bottle. The tannins are still pretty firm (but not course) and this wine has some time to go, but I'm a little concerned the layers of dark fruit might not hold up before the tannins get soft. A full bodied wine with staying power on the palate.

    August 1, 2015 - Garnet-tinged magenta. Warm blackberry pie, oak and wet leather nose. Medium bodied, cranberries, sharp cherries, black pepper, completely integrated tannins, a bit of mushroom, and a long red candy finish. It's fully mature and sublime.

    July 3, 2015 - My next to last bottle and I didn't know what to expect. But wow, its still kicking! It actually tasted young, with gobs of fruit. Only the sediment gave away its age. Long legs and finish.

    February 6, 2015 - This really is my last bottle of this, and it's in perfect form right now. Menthol and a faint touch of barnyard on the nose. On the palate, black cherry, blackberry, currants, and white pepper, with faint tannins and a vanilla note on the medium to long finish, and moderate acidity. At $29, this was excellent value for the money. Too bad there's no more to be had; this tastes like it has three or four good years left in it.
