    March 13, 2017 - Didn't review my first of four bottles but remember not being impressed. This bottle was a different experience. Dark, nice nose. Paired perfectly with a grilled ribeye, asparagus and chocolate cake. Seems to be improving.

    April 27, 2016 - My second bottle, first review. The first bottle (tasted several months back) was quite disjointed and I was hoping that this would stabilize so I put the rest away for a while. Wow, has it improved! Fruit-forward and light to medium bodied, but at the same time it is substantial and mouth-filling with a long finish. Really, really nice and I look forward to drinking the remaining 4 bottles.
