    November 24, 2012 - Day one - full dark fruits, smooth, and a bit restrained. Day two - bust out the spice box - much fuller and a pretty big wine.

    November 24, 2012 - Day one fairly smooth and restrained yet very big dark fruits. Day two brought out the spice box - much bigger and complex.

    March 10, 2012 - Saturday Walk Around Tasting 3/10/2012 (The Gourmet Shop, Columbia, SC): The second choice barrels and lots from a premium California producer, this is a big, rich California style red wine that comes in as moderately affordable. As a Meritage blend, we expect, and get some depth and complexity the individual varietals may not be able to exhibit on their own. Starts with deep rich Cabernet type color. Very interesting nose that smells like the mums in my mom's garden with big red cherry, big oak, and plums. Very concentrated entry of superbly ripe black cherry, blackberry, and plum, layered with spices like clove and nutmeg. A nice touch of wet, mushy earth and minerals. Very integrated already, although the oak could use some time, and will get much more complex in the development of those secondary and tertiary flavors. The dusty tannins will also be enhanced with some bottle age. Quite polished and elegant for a wine this big. Long spicy finish of black cherry, citrus style acid, vanilla, and wet leaves.
