    September 20, 2019 - Opened with my good friend Vino_MN for a belated birthday party, along with a 2016 Bevan Cellars Ontogeny, and it was kicking out great aromas from the time we popped the cork--wild blueberries, underbrush, cassis, and some red raspberries from the get go. Based on this, we chose not to decant, but to just enjoy the bottle as a PnP throughout dinner. Though less concentrated than the Bevan (probably because the Bevan was a 2016), the silky smooth tannins, medium framing acidity, and dark blue/and red fruit were in balance. The nose and palate were the best features, the finish was a bit short--but not disjointed. Very nice wine, firmly in it's drinking window. No doubt this could go longer in a nice cellar, but I see no reason to hold them at this point. Fun evening!

    November 15, 2018 - Deep, rich, full bodied wine only to be shared on a chilly winter night with friends. Wonderful texture and finish. Bravo.

    September 23, 2018 - I love the 2010. Rich, full bodied. Loads of blueberries, burnt coffee beans, charcoal, and vanilla.

    August 5, 2018 - PnP'd. Big & fruity - but smooth. Easy & enjoyable drinking. Lots of berry flavors, raisin & light oak.
