May 21, 2019 - PnP great
May 13, 2018 - Aromas of blackberry, pine resin, and boysenberry. Balanced wine, fruit-forward with blackberries and plum. Fine tannins. I would recommend cellaring for at least three more years because the fruit is still young.
March 26, 2017 - I was a bit impatient with this one. I needed to let breath more than I initially did. It didn't really open up till halfway threw the first glass. Once it did it was a great wine. Still many years of life left for this wine. I wish I had more of it.
August 5, 2013 - - Purple color with medium forming legs and aromas of kerosene, tobacco, tea and dusty. It's in total harmony and has flavours of tobacco, black currant and prune with a medium/full body. Juicy texture with a long finish.
