    December 15, 2017 - Dec 2017 - Getting a little tired. Fruit is definitely on the way out.

    December 11, 2016 - Fantastic find. Calling it 'blood red' doesn't do it justice. The cab sav / cab franc blend worked well - dry but fruit emerged after decanting a few hours. Not enough tannic balance to drive a high score, but can stand up to any meal.

    August 14, 2016 - Forgot about this bottle; thought at first it was a 2008 vintage. Opened 20 minutes before pairing with "Al dente" Rigatoni with spicy Italian sausage marinara. Very dark, opaque ruby in the glass, with long, languid legs. Nose of black currant, blackberry, licorice and leather (and tar, if you talk yourself into it). Very good+ intensity and concentration, with a relative paucity of fruit but still very resonant among all at the table. Always find something worthwhile with this specific bottling!

    April 21, 2016 - This wine has finally come around a bit. It was brutally tannic young but the tannins have mellowed out just a bit now and the wine is giving more pleasure. Very smokey with licorice and prune flavors. Still a bit rough, though.
