    December 30, 2016 - Wonderful beginning, soft and smooth. Tannins cross the palate in a pleasantly delayed way and are not overly unpleasant Would be fuller with a little more oak and cherry, but otherwise will pair well with foods not too rich in cream, butter, or garlic.

    October 14, 2016 - Medium red, deep and pretty. Heavy alcohol, raspberries on the nose. Pleasant mouth-feel with dark cocoa on the front palate that transitions to a very pleasant berries with cream and mocha-java end-palate through a very long finish. Mild green pepper notes as well, which I found detracted from the overall cohesion. Still, a very nice wine. Solid tannins make me think it will age well for quite a while, maybe another decade.

    August 12, 2015 - Expected this to be better than the 2004 and it was not at all. The 2006 was weaker, thinner, flatter, and had less dimension that the 2004. I was not impressed and it was not a memorable wine. The 2004 was a "WOW" wine.

    But dont get me wrong, this is still a very nice wine. I simply had higher hopes. We did not decant either. Perhaps that would helped.
