    September 7, 2016 - Glad I waited. The nose seduces you and is not a tease. It definitely pays off. A silky texture on the tongue and flavors that linger. Wish I had more.

    January 17, 2015 - Dark purple to inky hue. Dark berries with faint strawberry nose. Spicy, oaky, full bodied, nicely balanced tannins, easy to drink by itself. Great on a cold day just chillin' out.

    November 28, 2013 - Really should have waited on this one. Still tight but the power and potential are there.

    August 9, 2013 - Knew from pouring into the decanter that this bottle was going to be rocking the black olive.

    Olives meats and cherries. Looks like these are ready now.

    January 5, 2013 - Curiously unloved the first day open. And then on day two much more loved. I think it might have been the crowd or food. But in any case, still works it out on day two!
