    September 11, 2018 - Whoa, drinking well now. A year ago this was either in a dumb phase or I had an off bottle. Pop and pour. To me, this does not need a decant, ready to go. I have 2 more bottles, might sit on them to see what happens in another 2-3 years.

    March 11, 2017 - PnP'ed a small glass and let the rest slow ox for an hour. This is a wonderful wine, my favorite from Rasa.

    July 24, 2016 - P&P for my birthday dinner at Clyde's Prime Rib. This was just awesome. So powerful and rich, it rocked our palates! Super concentrated red fruit, earth, and a finish of sweet cherry pie. This was the WOTN. Amazingly delicious wine, Billo & Pinto! Drink now - 2025.

    November 9, 2015 - Less and less drinking of serious wine of the Noble Grapes (100% CS in this case aged in 50% new Fench oak) until 10-12 years after vintage for me. This was part of self education and compared to same vintage Gorman The Bully (90% CS, 10% Petit Verdot, 100% new French oak).

    Double decanted , left uncorked then double decanted at 3 hours. At 6 hours we checked in to find it tight, dry and acidic so in to the decanter it went.

    At 8 hours this began to open and show better balance with complexity in the high tones of fruit and tannin.

    After its slow start, this clearly bested the other bottle by meal time. Planning to revisit the comparison in around five years. I fully expect both to be more to our liking.

    If prognosticating, I would expect mid 90s score for this well made wine from the Red Mointain AVA desert environment when it hits its stride. Structure and acidity are present for long-term cellaring. Drink 2021-2035+.

    September 10, 2015 - Integration rounding out nicely. Smooth, lovely tannins. Good acid. Great backbone and structure.
