    September 14, 2018 - Fantastic blend! Very long smooth finish. Glad I have four left to see how this continues to evolve.

    March 9, 2017 - Deep ruby red with garnet edges. Thick but slightly aged nose with dark stewed berries, plums, damp earthiness, truffles, a touch savory and dark gravel in the finish. With some air it gained some darker fruits like black currants. Moderate plus tannins (7.5/10) and medium plus bodied. Still packs a punch on the palate with layers of dark cocoa, dark red and black currants, black cherries with great structure and acidity. Long and lingering finish. Decanted for two hours and it could have easily used more. Drink till 2027.

    December 16, 2015 - Served 8 bottles at a Christmas party featuring filet. The bottles are the last of a case I purchased from the winery and have been in my storage since.
    Amazing wine. Color, nose, mouth feel, balance. Black fruits, mid palate tannins. I wish I had more.

    April 12, 2015 - Rich ruby color, beautiful nose and fully integrated! Liked it even better than the 2007 I tasted along with it.
