    February 14, 2021 - Very nice. Evolved a bit since the previous bottle, but this was still a fruit-driven and tasty balanced port.

    September 5, 2015 - Popped and poured. Dark caramel, baking spices, figs, cassis and oak on the nose. Similar flavors on the palate with mostly dark fruit, charred oak and vanilla with a touch of heat on the finish. A bit heavy on the palate but otherwise, enjoyable to sip on.

    June 14, 2014 - Tasty. Good balance of fruit and spice and oak influence. More interesting than the previous bottle, but likely not going to be a very complex wine at any point.drink or hold.

    February 13, 2013 - Initially quite simple - plum, earth, great balance and acidity. Hoping to see this open up somewhat in the next while.

    Air is treating this wine nicely. The tannin and structure is coming out after being open an hour or so, and the flavours are gaining in complexity.

    January 26, 2013 - Deep brick color with many hues, thick slow-forming legs; burnt figs on the nose, some pepper; heavy-bodied, sweet fig with great port depth, good heat. Long lingering AT makes you crave walknuts.
