    April 3, 2015 - Bright Crimson with purple hues. Quite viscous.
    Floral, fresh, lifted violets and even rybina on the nose.
    The palate has more red berries with a hint of sweetness coming through the fruit flavour. Hints of dust and dirt coming through.
    It's a long finish that is quite drying but still leaves you wanting more.

    Can't believe this is 15 years old.

    Never had a Merlot like this before.

    June 16, 2014 - Decanted 20 minutes. Different interpretation than previous bottle. Tart, firm acidity, not very expressive, and incredibly tight. To me it's boring and I have no desire to drink it again.

    March 7, 2014 - Decanted 2 hours. Intense raspberry liqueur nose, eucalyptus, pencil lead. Sweet, full-bodied palate, rather alcoholic, cassis, red cherry and raspberry, but the fruit is straightforward and lacking the complexity or layered texture to the fruit that would make it better. No risk of ageing out any time soon, but I'm not sure time will soften the alcohol. Drink 2015-2025.

    September 8, 2007 - Edward Roberts Pre-Auction Tasting (Columbia Yacht Club): Deep inky garnet color. Notes of pepper, plum and dark fruit. Juicy dark fruit on the palate, with spicy oak dominating the finish.
