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.
