    December 26, 2020 - Still not as great of a wine as I had hoped; especially for 2010. Blue and black fruit just never opened up after 1.5 hours of decant. Mild finish..

    February 14, 2018 - A plush cabernet with lots of cassis and boysenberry, some coffee and earth as it opens up. The fruit is slick and alluring, but I'm not getting a whole lot of complexity. Tannins have resolved and give way gently. An enjoyable wine no doubt, just not sure I would pay however much this retails for. It's a little too... predictable. Don't see this developing much further.

    January 11, 2018 - Very nice Gemstone, one of the better ones I've had. Notes of blue and red fruit, licorice and dust. This took about 1.5 hours to open but when it did there was lots of velvet, low tennis, and a long finish. Some earth and early heat (that burned off). Glad I kept this bottle for the extra two years.

    September 10, 2017 - Drinking well. This wine has nice flavors and plenty of velvety plushness in the mouthfeel. Popped and poured and didn't take notes...

    December 25, 2015 - Not as strong of a wine as I thought it would be ...yet. Nice deep bouquet of chocolate, must, and tobacco. An elegant wine but this is still young. Medium finish. Needs a couple of more years before the next one.
