January 16, 2016 - Surprisingly better than the last bottle. Sadly the last one though. It has served us well.

December 1, 2015 - Rose, baking spice and fresh cut oak scent. Black currant, licorice and mineral flavor with energy and pleasing tension from grippy tannins. Paired wonderfully with panko crusted pork chops.

November 21, 2015 - Decanted for about 1-½ hours at this point. Way too much oak, which masks much of the fruit. It tones down a little after more time in the decanter, but still over the top. Too bad...this could have been a very good wine. 82 now, and a big disappointment.
Tried again two days later, and finished it three days later. It was very good both times. The oak was gone, so the fruit and other flavors were well displayed. 90

September 24, 2015 - still fairly closed: rather bright nose of ripe dark cherry, soft oaky vanilla, reticent hint of floral note; strong acidity, bit stalky core of dark fruits; rather harsh tannic remains overlay fairly long fruity finish. in a transitional phase, needs at least 3 years

July 9, 2015 - Have had several bottles over the years. Never been a bad wine but not great either. The usual vanilla and oak, earth, cherries, rather unexciting. No rush to finish but doubt this will become more interesting.
