    November 25, 2014 - Still a very fine wine. Paired well with my burger from our local bar & grill. Easy drinking. Didn't decant but got better as the wine sat in the glass

    June 25, 2010 - Opened not decanted. Dark saturated bramble and blackberry; medium weight in body; mocha and chocolate notes; ends with a slightly bitter, a touch green, and dry finish. Good. Needs about an hour to open up.

    May 23, 2009 - Opened not decanted. In the glass: black purple in color with just a bit of clarity at the edge. On the nose: fresh clean pressed juice with black fruit, a touch of mint and a hint of orange. On the palate: a little mustiness on the entry; a little watery in the middle; ends with blackberry, spice, pepper and with a sweet orange citrus finish. Good to Very Good.

    FYI, this looks like it can be a long term ager.

    September 1, 2006 - Tasted at the winery. Rich floral nose with some mocha. Interesting flavors of cranberry, currant, and semi-sweet chocolate (think Nestle Toll House). Medium body. Long finish. Dusty tannins.
