December 23, 2014 - This is in such a good place right now. Little funky out the gate and decanted for an hour. Great red fruit on the nose with a dab of green pepper. The palate had red cherry, bell pepper and touch of currant and some tertiary flavors of earth. The finish is moderate. This is a damn fine bottle of wine that we enjoyed with a beef tenderloin for Christmas dinner.

December 6, 2014 - 95+. Great showing. 2hr decant. Iron, currants, forest floor, herbs on the nose. Palate is big but balanced and explodes with layers of dark and red fruit supported by a strong tannic foundation. The finish is long, layered and thought provoking.

November 22, 2014 - This took quite a while to come around from magnum, 4 hour double decant and it was singing. A bit austere at first, but classic cab came on big with air. Very food friendly, will age a very long time. Good stuff.1 person found this helpful Comment

November 7, 2014 - Dark cherry color.
Berries, leather, orange zest, mint chocolate on the nose.
Raspberries, earth, on the palate with muddled cocktail fruit on the finish. Long finish with lots of layers. The tannins are round but mouth coating. Obviously still very young and, while very good now, will be better in a few years.1 person found this helpful Comment
October 30, 2014 - Decanted 3 hours. Intense and powerful on the nose and palate and quite surly. Lacks charm presently. Lots of great material but to my palate this needs quite a few years to unlock the pleasure palace. Try again 2019+
