    October 28, 2016 - @ Homer with the PIES

    Three hour decant.

    Garnet colored. Full bodied. High ABV
    Blueberries, blueberries, blueberries, and more blueberries....
    A little jammy, some grape bubble gum

    Tastes like the nose. Some sweetness. Concord grapes, Very soft
    Sophisticated, well put together wine. Silky, mild tannins.
    This wine is drinking perfectly right now. It will not get any better than this. Exceptional wine.

    May 9, 2016 - The score above is for what people who like super oaked nuclear bombs in a wine. This wine CONCENTRATE is so RICH that it can rival the best of them. Like a massive Cote Rotie, its thick enough to stand a fork in (wine wise), and the bourbon styled oak treatment is the cradle of all the sugar. Lots of baking spice, brown sugar, cassis, plums, and did I mention oak? I can drink this a couple of times a year, and thats it. Come to think of it, this is liquid dessert for me... Still battled with finishing it...Not for me, but I scored accordingly in fairness and respect to those who think this is what wine is all about. Still has tannins to last and improve a bit....Drink or Hold.

    August 28, 2015 - Pitch black body. Big nose of cassis, dark fruit, vanilla and spices. Expansive mouth, silky and balance. Long caudalice. Intoxicating wine.

    December 19, 2014 - Opulent, rich and sweet fruit. Coffee and moist dark earth notes, but the fruit really carries the day here. Straightforward and predictable.
