    February 20, 2019 - Red and black fruit. Tannins have softened. Long finish.
    Shame that the price escalated and chased me away a few years later.

    May 10, 2017 - Found another bottle; deliciousioso paired with a Sun Farms rib eye and steamed spinach.
    In my opinion-- I appreciate where this wine is at; still holding its fruit and in a sweet spot in regards to structure and balance.
    I could drink this all day. Thank you Mike Smith. 93.5

    April 23, 2017 - Delicious - 2+ hours of air and it just kept getting better as the evening went on. Dark fruit--smooth mid palate and a lingering finish. Drinking much better then the '08 at this point. Good job.

    August 17, 2016 - 1 hr decant. Lots of black fruits and spice on the nose. Blackberry, cassis, spicy oak and herb notes on the plush palate.My favorite 12C to date.

    May 14, 2016 - Popped and poured...expressive nose of dark fruit and chocolate...integrated tannins and medium-length finish...saved some of the bottle for the next day and a lot of the fruit had faded...I think bottle has peaked.
