    November 7, 2014 - Red Fruit (Cherries) and earth on the nose. In the mouth add to it some graphite and pencil box. This has wonderful mouth feel and a great round taste

    June 11, 2014 - Double decanted before serving and served with grilled flank steak. This wine has developed nicely over the past couple of years. Nose and initial flavors of cassis, cherries, and spice with a medium mouth feel and good midrange and light, soft, tannins in the finish. Enjoyable to drink on a weeknight and should hold for several years (5 or so).

    May 5, 2014 - Wow, its coming together. Black and red fruit, soft integrated tannines, herbes de cotes de Provence, and a hint of mint at the aftertongue. Fully mature. Drink now, and how long?

    April 14, 2014 - Bel rubino compatto. Il naso inizia lentamente ad evolversi: al mirtillo si affiancano ora grafite, pepe nero, menta, cacao amaro, spezie indiane, viola appassita. Bocca austera, in fase di chiusura, con finale amarognolo.
