  • Bought at the winery on our honeymoon in 2010. Cellared lovingly since then. Popped and poured for a $25 corkage at my wife's birthday dinner at Chambar in Vancouver. This was excellent - echo others on floral, dark fruit (especially cherries) and leather (according to her but I have a bit of a cold so...). Very little heat. Very well integrated tannins. I was worried I may be opening it too early but was thrilled within about 5 minutes of opening. I wish I had so very much more of this...

  • This needed 90 minutes to open and soften. Over that time, there was high acidity and heat, and the wine appeared tightly wound. Hopefully this is just an indication that the wine needs more cellar time. But after 90 minutes the wine was singing, well integrated, silky with deep earthy background and flavors of dark fruits with touches of spices and leather. Medium tannins throughout. I was hoping for an amazing wine and although it did not deliver at that level, it was still a very nice wine.

  • Dark red color. Nice floral and dark fruit nose. On the palate, black and red fruits, spicy, slight earth with medium tannins. But heavy acidity with bitterness and heat. Will this resolve with more time? Not sure.

  • Ripe black fruits in the bouquet. Round and fruity wine on the palate with soft tannin and bitterness. Definitely a more than ok and excellent wine, however not as special as expected. Probably wise to wait until 2016 or a bit longer.
