November 29, 2014 - Compared to the last bottle we drank this one offers blunt manners: rough tannins, not yet embedded wood. Strange: two bottles from the same vintage - but one a gentleman and the other a crude fellow.

May 27, 2014 - The wine looks ruby colored. The legs are medium. There is heavy sediment in the bottle. It smells like mineral and stoniness. The body is medium/full. The wine has smooth texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has low acidity.

May 2, 2014 - I like this wine. Decanted for 2 hours prior to drinking and it could've used even more time. Basically, it's still a baby and will likely knit together more in the bottle. That said, it's dark and brooding and fairly enjoyable now. Dark fruit dominates with a good dose of cocoa powder tannins.

May 1, 2014 - This bottle seemed painfully young and very modern. I would hold this and hope for the best. I'm holding mine.

April 2, 2014 - This wine is made in a modern, new-world style. Gobs of fruit, low acidity. It is reminiscent of Australian shiraz. I don't much like this style.
