    April 30, 2019 - Killed a baby. Very black fruit, some pyrazines, hard and disjointed. Although I liked it more than most (it was my wine), understandably last in it's flight at J&A's.

    June 12, 2018 - Tight. Tannins seem to be in charge at the moment. Oh, and surprising heat made us check the abv: 14.8% How the heck did they do that in an arctic vintage like 2011? Let other bottles rest or give a long decant.

    January 11, 2018 - Mine. Initial test pour was fine but later, when the bottle was passed, I picked up TCA. DAMN!

    September 26, 2017 - Enjoyed for my son's bday dinner. Paired well with chili. Tannins nicely smoothing out. Decanted about an hour. This could go awhile.

    July 28, 2017 - Great nose, dark violet/purple color, dark fruit, balanced integrated tannins with medium to long finish. Very good wine.
