February 23, 2013 - Moderately dark ruby color with some browning around the rim. Wonderful nose and palate of dried fruit. Raisins, fig, some woodiness. Great balance and power.

February 17, 2013 - Nose of sweet red fruit, spices (including oak spices) and hints of dried fruits. Full, rich palate was balanced and complex with cherry, a little earth, dried fruit and soft tannin sweetness. This was good.

October 5, 2012 - An excellent bottle of wine! Seems that well stored it is still enjoyable with great taste and nice nose. Color is still deep red. Taste is spicy with fruits.

August 28, 2012 - Much, much better than '05. Tobacco on the nose; on the palate balanced fruit, wood (cedar & oak) and acid. Nice wine for the money.

August 14, 2012 - not as good as earlier bottles, have to wonder if it's already past prime.
