    June 22, 2014 - Really needs a long decant to show its stuff. I may just have to be more patient with these beauties.

    January 31, 2014 - I don't think the bottle was flawed but there was a funkiness to this wine. Especially at the price point I paid for it.

    November 13, 2013 - Sharon's Birthday (Kapcsandy, Rhys, Huet, Pape Clement, +++) (GHT): This stood in great contrast to the Pape Clement. Everyone loved it. While this is young, it is not a monster or a fruit bomb. It is elegant and well made. Cassis some coffee and dark chocolate on the nose, slight minty/herbal note. Great rich yet slick texture. On the palate, up front with great juicy fruit. Complex, more from flavor profile than layering. Really easy to drink. Long finish. While this will last for a long time, it is really enjoyable today.

    October 13, 2013 - Felt like a big cab tonight, and this one hit the spot, smooth with the teeth tingeling tannins, flavors back up the fresh fruit on the nose, great stuff

    October 1, 2013 - The nose is smoky, meaty, with menthol, burnt rubber, burnt vanilla oak and alcohol.
    The palate shows thin fruit, with alcohol profile, sweet and non complex fruit.
    This was not very pleasant at all.
    Too much oak and alcohol, and to sweet and thin, diluted fruit.
    Perhaps revisit in 10 years?
    Although the fruit is to thin I believe to last down the road.
    Dissapointing, especially given the price tag.
