    January 13, 2021 - Stayed very closed after decanting for 2 hours and drinking over 3 hours. Will try again in 1-2 years.

    July 5, 2019 - Can't really be fair to this one, as it was the fourth bottle of the night among a group of five, and my taste buds were pretty burnt out from two spoofy wines served earlier. No worries, as my expectations weren't that high based on previous bottle.

    May 30, 2019 - Briefly decanted and consumed over the next couple of hours. Rich, full-bodied and absolutely delicious. A great balance of juicy acidity and firm tannins on the finish. A another great effort from Michael Keenan. Drink up...at its peak.

    December 13, 2018 - My partner's comment: "Mmm. Really rich, good." The first bottle we've tried since shortly after purchase. A big merlot. Dark crimson, no fading at the rim. Spice and some alcohol (14.8%) on the nose . Rich, slightly monolithic dark fruits on the palate, very long finish. Nice tannic grip. Delicious wine.

    November 14, 2016 - Paired this with a charcouterie plate followed by a dairy-free corn chowder. While the wine is big, concentrated, we found it lacked the nuance I associate with the Spring Mountain AVA. Parker gives i a 93 and suggests a drink window of 2015-2025. Perhaps this will improve...
