    August 26, 2018 - Didn't expect much from this bottle, but surprisingly decent. Still dark in color. Licorice, earth and a tad of oak on the nose. Sour cherry and minerals on the palate.

    February 27, 2016 - I thought it tasted like it was past prime, but other, more experienced wine drinkers in our wine group thought it was delicious. Very smooth and nicely balanced.

    March 17, 2015 - Enjoyed a bottle of this earlier in the week and it was sublime... Quite a variation from some of the other notes here.
