    December 15, 2018 - The wine looks inky colored. The legs are medium. There is light sediment in the bottle. It smells like prune. It tastes like blackberry. The body is medium/full. The wine has smooth texture. The wine finishes short. The wine has low acidity.

    November 10, 2018 - Very tight on uncorking, it opened nicely after about 30 minutes. It has evolved to a complex wine, predominantly underbrush, briar, earth, with fruit taking a background (dark cherries).

    September 23, 2015 - Good but a little lacking in character.

    July 12, 2015 - Definitely past its prime. Improved with decanting but overly dry and thin flavors.

    June 30, 2015 - Still very nice. Chocolate overtones with dark fruit.
