    September 12, 2020 - Brooding, typical notes. Always great with 5+ years on them.

    August 23, 2020 - Slo-oxed for 15 minutes but it needs more air time to open. A 10 minute decant may be better. On the nose you're greeted with red and dark red fruits and a touch of must. The medium to plus bodied palate shows these same red and dark red fruits, some earth, and a good dose of black pepper. The acidity is balancing and there is still a touch of drying tannins on the medium finish. I would think this wine could hold for another couple of years. Another fine effort by Russ & his crew.

    August 30, 2019 - Dark red color with some viscosity. Warm dark fruit and must aromas. Rich dark cherry, coco and leather flavors. Nice acidity on a lingering finish. High octane.

    December 30, 2017 - Big, bold, and dark, yet remarkably well balanced. Dark fruit, meat, and a hint of pepper.
