    June 17, 2018 - Plum, cassis, ripe raspberry, tobacco, tar, cedar, and sage. Intense aroma that my girlfriend noticed from across the room. It took a few minutes in the glass to open up, and it just keeps getting better. This has a good amount of acidity and tannin that makes me believe it could go another 5 years easily. It's in a good place now though, so wait if you want but don't feel the need to.

    August 9, 2014 - Open for 3 hours before I got to it. Nose has the classic Ardente funk, cured meat, strawberry, cherry, and tobacco are all on the nose.

    Palate is entering tart cherry, cola, full mouth feel with a weighty tannic grit. If I ha more is save them for another 5+ years.

    March 22, 2014 - Not drinking it's best right now. Nose is great, palate is muted and numb. Improved after an hour + open so I would suggest a long decant, or hide it away for a while.

    December 31, 2013 - Cedar closet, sweet tobacco, and cherries on the nose. Dense. Strong acid profile, cherry driven palate. Medium finish. Good wine, but simplistic palate. The nose carries it.

    August 30, 2013 - Pnp. Overly tart/ zingy at first. Nice fruit, but restrained. Came together after a while in the glass. I'm getting the impression that none of these wines can be enjoyed fully without some breathe time.
