    May 28, 2018 - - Brick color - Ignore my previous BS comment. LOL. Cracked another bottle last night and the wine was rich and thick with jammy fruit and power to spare. Glad I still have a few left in the cellar, but I will be drinking them all over the next 12 months.

    March 19, 2018 - From my cellar. Unfortunately past its prime, but still brings back great memories. Good news is I still have 6 bottles to enjoy as a good, but no longer great wine.

    January 29, 2016 - Plum, dark fruit, leather and tar, with a hint of coffee and mocha flavors. Smooth, rich texture. Drinking nicely with a decant.

    October 29, 2014 - Leather, cedar and black, dark fruit. Not quite a 90 pt wine, but good.

    September 5, 2013 - Hart Davis Hart BYOB Dinner (Hinterland Gastropub, Milwaukee, WI): Pleasant fruit and generally appealing balance, save for a touch of the heat of the vintage. From magnum, tasted quickly on the way out the door, not scored.
