    April 27, 2013 - Well balanced and more restrained than I was expecting. Plush dark fruit, plenty of cassis and licorice notes, soft tannins on finish. A good second wine, and a decent qpr at ~$70.

    December 17, 2012 - A bunch of Cabs and a few others: This is very nice. Not as good as the 07 Futo, but still outstanding. This is a more masculine style wine. Big and bold. Nose shows some toasted oak. Also plenty of cassis. Big, thick texture. Got better all night long.

    August 10, 2012 - Kinda like the middle innings of a no hitter. During, when you don't know the outcome, plods along. Towards the end, you realize how fine it is. Would rather have more of the end earlier.

    March 17, 2012 - Over two days. Really nice. Mostly dark fruits but a nice brightness (Cab Franc I think) on the finish. Has a really cool spiciness too. Maybe a little spiky and disjointed but great potential. For those with more bottles, I would recommend several years of age to integrate some of the sharp corners.

    September 2, 2011 - Decanted for 2 hours. Amazing blue fruit on the nose with some vanilla. Palate is blueberry, cassis and vanilla creme with a touch of red currant. This will be an amazing wine in a few years. Give it time, but so nice now! Glad I have more. Finish is lengthy, at least 40 seconds.
