    May 3, 2016 - Rich, fully developed cassis on the nose upon open. A tad thin on the palate, but it filled in with graphite, mature dark red fruit, and silky tannins and acid still intact. Although my bottle appeared to be in pristine condition, it also suggested this should be consumed in the short term.

    October 9, 2015 - Extremely rich in its red fruit. Decanted 1 hour before first sniff. Powerful nose if deep red spicy fruit, almost oriental black tea, someone mentioned menthol in this thread which absolutely spot on. Theres hints of dark somewhat smokey liquirice, toasted oak, charcoal. In the mouth its rich, and dense in a modern napa fruit way. It dances of into the sunset with structure of bordeaux tannins with perfectly balanced rich fruit.

    March 26, 2015 - Jeff Leve review 2/13 spot on with oak a bit milder, but still full bodied, quite dark with only modest lightening and years to go. Also got some initial menthol and rich black cherry....merlot softness a real treat here..pretty wine if not for the classicist

    March 19, 2015 - If I hadn't known better, I would have thought this was from the mid 90s. Accelerated aging? Perhaps, but this was nevertheless an excellent wine. Only took an hour decant to get going. Medium ruby color. Red currant, black cherry, leather, licorice, eucalyptus, and nutmeg. Medium weight and silky smooth on the palate. Tannins beautifully balanced. If there's one shortcoming with this wine, it's the somewhat short finish. How much time is left here? Likely between 5 and 10 years, but I wouldn't wait too long to pop a cork.
