    December 2, 2014 - Notes from day 2. Cassis, dried flowers, leather and warm spice on the nose. Soft and silky, with a medium plus weight. Good fruit, blackberry, plum. Super fine, soft tannins with balanced acidity. Quite nice.

    November 22, 2013 - Excellent QPR. Drinking beautifully right now. Balanced with good fruit and tannin structure with very pleasant finish.

    April 16, 2013 - This bottle isn't showing as well as others I've had. It's good, but just missing some of the liveliness. Nice nose, very dark and floral. Still one dimensional on the body with blue/black fruits and med finish.

    February 12, 2013 - This keeps getting better with time (and air). Gorgeous fruit on the nose--violets, vanilla and some mocha. Rich, concentrated body with blue/black fruits. Finishes with superfine tannins and med+ length. Lacking a little depth on the palate. Well balanced, and overall enjoyable to drink right now.

    December 24, 2012 - Definitely needs to decant a bit: I initially thought it was a bit too tight but an hour opening up fixed that. Dark grassy odors, deep plum flavor. Easily one or the best $19 wines in my cellar.
