    February 22, 2010 - Incredible wine and will improve. Talk about dark fruit, this wine had it in spades on the pop-and-pour with blackberry stabbing the back of your tongue in a one-two fruit-tannin punch. This eased quickly upon decanting to reveal great balance and structure and one smooth finish. This wine has yet to grow into its full fruit flavor and balance characteristics, but it is incredibly smooth. The Barry White of wine. It's gonna lay you down by the fire and make sweet love. Or is that Isaac Hayes? Either way, you get it. Pure awesome.
