    December 22, 2014 - Just a little too much acidity going on. Will cellar another year before trying again.

    December 25, 2013 - Aromas needed aggressive swirling to coax the cherries and spice. Palate was medicinal at first, but smoothed out with air showing dark fruit, hints of vanilla, good acidity, and good length. Very enjoyable.

    June 9, 2013 - Opened and poured (a mistake: Should have decanted for an hour). At first the nose was like fresh sourdough, but after some vigorous aeration, I got some fruit. Similar in the mouth - the fruit took some coaxing, but I enjoyed the strong attack, the balance, and the long finish. As the wine breathed, it seemed to relax and show off its balance and complexity, but remained vigorous. This wine can work alone, but I enjoy it with food - it is strong enough to pair with many options, but I think of crisp, bold, natural vegetable flavors that would show off the wine's classy edge and complexity. The 2006 is great now and should remain so for 2 or 4 years.
