    May 5, 2016 - Decanted 3 hours: black fruit now giving way to more savory aspects on the nose, but the high alcohol gets in the way both on nose and taste. Still a very good mouthful, that will likely last a while longer. Blackberry jam on toast!!

    April 30, 2016 - First mature relentless I've had - any concern about these aging is misplaced. Spectucular, absolutely no rough edges. Smooth, oak and fruit in perfect muted harmony. This isn't the over the top youth, but the incredibly refined adult. Wow, such structure and grace. Drink now and love it, but I see no reason this doesn't continue to age gracefully for a long time.

    March 13, 2016 - If you decant and give this wine some time, add 1-2 points. It really opens up on the nose and rounds out on the palate.

    February 27, 2016 - Liked it better last time when fruit was more apparent. However, still a nice wine. Dark purple in color. Nose of plum, spice, leather and pepper. Palate more of the same with plum subdued. No tannin.
