    December 31, 2010 - Fleshy, full bodied, rich with dark fruits, mocha, and held together with almost fully resolved tannins. Smooth and easy to drink. -JBL

    April 14, 2010 - nose - gorgeous nose of dark cherry, maple, and toasty oak
    mouth - dark fruit, black cherry, with good minerality, but narrow on the midpalate (as opposed to expansive). Still with some tannins on the finish. I'm hard pressed to see any reason to hold my last bottle any longer.

    November 1, 2009 - Still retaining a deep red color, bordering on opaque. Nose of black fruit, coffee and mocha. Medium bodied with persistent flavors and astringent tannins that cling to the gumline rather than integrate. Attractive in a fading way, so I wouldn't tarry in consuming. There's also an earthiness that's quite engaging and with the unthinkably light 13% alcohol, this would be an outstanding food wine over the next few years.
