    October 26, 2014 - Outstanding. And at peak or a year or two away. Color of a great Bordeaux from a warm vintage. Blackberry, cool mint, and freshly showered armpit of a beautiful woman on the nose. Fine but not yet fully resolved tannins in the mid-palate, along with front-of-tongue berries and a sensation of richness and depth. Doesn't finish with great length but rather with a satisfying bite. Perfection incarnate with a grilled rib-eye in front of the TV during a World Series victory.

    May 16, 2014 - This is the fourth bottle I've had and this one showed nicely. There is lots of Dark berry fruits with blackberry being the most prevalent, and immediately a nice medium oak hits to add the first layer; then the Syrah bite hits but it is smooth, supple but quite subtle. The finish is primarily a fruity tannin that has a very smooth mouth feel. This wine is beginning to come into its own.

    May 7, 2014 - Still bombastic, still loaded with black fruit, drinking fantastically right now, a cut above the '05s.

    March 23, 2014 - Holding up well. Deep purple color. Nose with blueberry, blackberry, and current fruit flavors with a hint of clove and floral notes. Well integrated flavors with an elegant finish. Little residual tannins and a little residual acidity helps keep it bright through the smooth finsh. Great QPR at $22... sorry only one more in the cellar.

    January 26, 2014 - Big fruit but a bit too much bite on the back palate in this bottle. Some tastes are super and others not so much. Still even those that are less are still nice.
