September 8, 2020 - Great wine. Bold but sweet.
April 1, 2019 - This had a lot more time left, sorry I drank it
February 13, 2019 - This is showing a lot more spice than a couple of years ago.
Acidity and tannins holding ripe berries together, solid for a few more years at least
February 22, 2018 - Waaay to jammy for my preference. Big bold fruit on the initial sip, but continues to get overly sweet on the back tongue. Profile is more Zinfandel than a balanced Meritage.
October 10, 2017 - Damn good
September 10, 2017 - Two hour decant, the nose is dark fruit/blackberry and mocha and is a little on the hot side. The palate holds itself up with fine grained tannins and solid acidity, with blackberry, chocolate and a sweet tobacco line coming through. This has a dense mouthfeel that coats your tongue and cheeks, with a medium length finish.
January 9, 2017 - Tastes like Mega Purple.
September 6, 2016 - Decanted and sampled immediately. Mild nose and minimal sediment. Rich mouth filling fruit, with a peppery finish.
September 4, 2016 - Absolutely delicious and decadent. Full and rich on the palate, with hints of dark fruit and cocoa.
