    February 2, 2019 - Impressively, this wine tasted extremely similar to my tasting note on 8/31/16. It is like time stopped. This is a massively full bodied offering, showing loads of creme de cassis, spice box, blackberries, forest floor and beautiful floral notes. Fully packed and stacked full of gorgeous black and blue fruit against the backdrop of great earth and mineral driven flavors, it is super layered and extremely pure. More forward then the 2015 or 2016 edition, this is all about pure hedonism in wine. I am seriously impressed that it has not aged much if at all in the past 2.5 years.

    December 28, 2018 - A light floral aroma with a hint of soap suds. Dark purple black with flavors of cassis and dark fruits. Tannins present providing for a drier finish and built for long term aging. Solidly structured wine.

    December 25, 2018 - Extremely good. Big, focused, balanced. Will improve over the next few years, but great now!

    December 25, 2018 - What a wonderful wine. Full bodied, extremely aromatic. Minerals and crashed rocks with dark Mary throughout. Balanced wine very smooth and silky
