    March 4, 2017 - Tasted completely blind. Obviously Merlot, obviously New World. Guessed 10 year-old Californian. At first, this was very Concord-grapey which didn't leave me hugely enthusiastic. But get it into the glass, and it's a different beast; ripe, plummy Merlot, a touch of clay, a bit of flowers, not particularly hot in the mouth. I liked this and it went beautifully with the pork - certainly a wine for the table.

    March 3, 2017 - Provided as comparison to the troplong mondot. Although i see the pleasure bomb here for what it is, i worry about the long term development. Explosive black plum, fig, coffee bean and blackberry preserves. Chocolate shavings and milk shake density on the palate, and layers of fruit that dont stop.

    Not really my style any longer, but i respect the wine for what it is in the contect of 2007.

    February 9, 2017 - Great final night dinner with Kale and Ranko Anderson. Second of the reds:
    Super dark ruby red. Lovely nose with some crushed dark berries, dark floral notes and very light stones. Moderate tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Tons of layers in dark berries, both black and tight blue. Great depth and power. Decanted for two hours. Drink till 2026.

    November 5, 2016 - Excellent Merlot, showed very well against some difficult competition. Medium ruby red with high intensity. No decant but nose was showing a mix of dark cocoa, baking spices and dark berries. Moderate tannins (6.5/10) with a rich and full body. Long finish showing similar characteristics to the nose. Delicious merlot as always. Drink till 2026.

    July 16, 2016 - Voluptuous, full bodied, great Merlot with lots of aging potential. Black and red fruits, tobacco, coffee and minerals. Incredibly pure and powerful. At this stage lacking a bit of subtlety but I suspect it will grow.
