    March 5, 2014 - Gorgeous, black fruit, modest nose, and mild tannins with a long finish make this a solid wine. I have one left and will enjoy shortly as I cannot imagine this will improve from today's pleasant drink

    February 12, 2014 - Displays notes of ripe black cherry, cassis, loamy soil, and sweet tobacco. Polished mouthfeel and resolved tannins. But too flabby. I would drink this sooner than later.

    January 3, 2014 - Popped and poured. Delicious black fruit and a slight madeira at first, then blew off into a terrific cherry and mint sensation. We really enjoyed this wine but its definitely at its peak.
