    September 15, 2014 - Very nice red fruit, spice and a touch of earth. Very elegant and complete in the mouth. More rounded than the Shea. Really enjoyed the delicate spice notes.

    September 13, 2014 - This wine did not age well. It was not tainted, the cork was intact and it had been cellared properly since my purchase but the wine had lost all of its fruit and much of the flavor. Tasted nothing like previous bottles. Unfair for me to enter the 85 points into the mix.

    June 14, 2014 - Same notes as before but just didn't feel like waiting to pop open as was grilling salmon and mushrooms and just thought it would work well together... It did! Really nice bottle!

Even better than what I remembered from the tasting at the winery. 92+

    May 23, 2014 - Nose starts with oak and then wet forest floor and spice. In the mouth it is red fruit dominant with strawberry and raspberry. The tannins are still somewhat pronounced after popping and pouring but recede after an hour. Really good but I bet even better with another couple of years in bottle.
