    August 5, 2017 - I have not written much in the last 6 months as I have not had anything that seemed worth writing about. In fact I had moved away from wine and was trying different tequilas as it seemed like more of a summer drink. This wine, however, is worth writing about. I have enjoyed a 2005, 2008, and now 2010 sigaro by Fairchild. While this wine is only 7 years old, it reminds me of the old saying "good things come to those who wait." As opposed to all of the 2013s and 2014s that are being opened, this wine is starting to hit on all cylinders. There is no "young" fruit profile. This wine is integrated and has a long finish. While the nose is a little muted, this wine delivers on the palate. Milk chocolate and blueberry with a bit of tobacco. Everything is ripe and so silky smooth. This experience has motivated me to be patient and not touch most of my 2013s. Look, I am a huge fan of Mike Smith and Russel Bevan. While I have loved their wines early, I think a little time pays great dividends.

    December 25, 2016 - Outstanding wine, big brash fruit upon open lush nose and body. Really well developed after an hour or so. Perfect Christmas Eve wine with steaks.
