    December 27, 2014 - After being decanted for 2 hours, the nose is still bright and fresh fruit. Color in glass is dark and brooding with clarity absence of sediment. The taste is balance of firm acidity, dark berries, and itegrated tannins. Great to drink now but will benefit with 3 years more cellaring. Glamorous and classy wine. Great with Prime Rib roast.

    November 23, 2014 - the nose was bit muted at first and never really opened up fully, but the wine was quite delicious. the tannin is fully integrated and dark fruit is really showing through. no need to wait on opening these

    May 7, 2012 - Heritage Grand Wine Tasting (Ritz-Carlton - Chicago, IL): Ripe feminine. Spicy brigh red fruit. A bit one dimensional. Still nice styling and fruit.
