    January 11, 2017 - A very lovely wine. The nose was floral with some chocolate and berries. It was great from the first pour (no decant). On the palate, loads of black fruit, toasted almond and the tannins were well integrated.

    December 27, 2016 - Decanted about an hour - in a great and balanced place right now. Blackberry and black cherry fruit show first followed by notes of mocha, cedar, and vanilla. Still has the aura of over-extraction, but has since calmed down to balance fruit and tertiary components. Great with steak - medium acidity, med-plus alcohol. Drink soon and be rewarded!

    October 16, 2016 - Excellent wine in a great drinking window. Decanted over an hour. Nose is least attractive element. Inky purple. Very pleasant ripe black and blue fruit that is harmonious and full but not in the least overpowering. Pleasant finish. Stopped buying these a few years back and now may reconsider (if Dave is still making them.)

    August 18, 2016 - Best bottle (@ Weindorf Kirchheim): See last tasting note: Poser wine without much substance.

    May 7, 2016 - Baked leather. Rich blueberry hints, slight cider and coffee after tones. Decanted in reidel, served in reidel somm glasses. Cut my finger while pepping food and drinking this wine. I'm ok if you guys are wondering. If you're not, it went very well with steak and sweet potatoes. I wished I had more of this vintage.
