    February 15, 2016 - In a wonderful place, still plenty of fruit but a wonderful place and probably not getting better.

    December 15, 2013 - This initially had something off-putting that blew off by day two. Aromas of tobacco, earth, spice and plums. The palate shows a bit of funk along with forest floor, plum and spice. Integrated medium tannins/acidity. Drink now or over the next few years.

    December 15, 2012 - A nose of funk and earth, dark garnet in color. A medium bodied red, with plum, cherry, earthy funk and spice. Did long decant to try and get rid of smell but for me was too Old World.

    October 22, 2012 - Takes about two hours to open up. Slightly earthy aromas of dark berry and forest floor. Medium to full body. Dry mouthfeel that compliments food well. Well balanced acidity.
