    July 11, 2020 - Jason's. Sampled an hour after opening. Beautiful nose. Fruit and a modest amount of wood. Palate is cherry berry fruit and some soft tannins. Will decant.

    5 hours in it's hitting its stride. Beautiful nose and rich, rich, round chocolate mouth. Damn shame we didn't give it more time to breathe. Next bottle will wait but you could drink it now with great pleasure with a 5 hour decant.

    Faded away at the end. Not sure what to do with it

    Mouth - big wine, big big berry but hot on the back palate. Disjointed. Not loving this like the other reviewers below. 89 points, if it were to get an official score.

    April 5, 2014 - Same as last notes but this one was decanted about 5 hours and was outstanding. I wish I had bought more and plan to stay away from the remaining bottles for a long while.

    May 3, 2013 - Wow, this is good. The finish goes on and on. Wonderfully elegant nose coupled with a mouth coating big fruit palette that also seems to go on forever. Thanks Bob for making this wine! I can't wait to see how much this improves.
