    August 4, 2016 - The missus liked this so much she was ticked off I drank most of it. Almost a pop and pour, not much need for a decant. Purple and black fruit. Early on a back of the tongue finish that is a bit green. With some time, very pleasant smooth moderate to full bodied wine with a good finish.

    July 27, 2015 - Full on intense smooth fruit. Blueberries. Quite tart. Odd Jose at first but develops into floral.

    May 2, 2015 - Teeth staining purple. The nose needed a little bit of coaxing but had black licorice, grilled meat and dark fruit. Not a fruit bomb but had multiple layers of blueberry, black raspberry, white pepper and finished with vanilla. Lots of tannins at this young age. Food helped cut this some. Might have benefitted from a little more acidity for my palate. Very nicely done for a wine of this price.
