November 28, 2014 - Day after Thanksgiving wine. Hearty merlot. Dusty blue fruits and fine tannin.

November 9, 2014 - The complete opposite of my March note. Pop and pour though a Vinturi and it was excellent. Tannins well integrated; nice long finish. A surprising hint of vanilla. Overall, very tasty. Last bottle. Wish I had more.

July 22, 2014 - Gave to Chris Ellis (next door) hoping he would have a "wine moment".
