    September 27, 2017 - Cork disintegrated but wine was fine. Loads of brambly fruit and rich leather. Inky black color. Softening edges on the tannins, but I think it has reached a point of diminishing returns.

    January 8, 2016 - After 90 minutes in the decanter: heady aromas of black cherry and black raspberry, with notes of wood smoke, hard candy and underbrush. Mouth-coating black raspberry and blackberry, sliding across the palate with flashes of flint, mineral/wet rock, and pepper. Still fairly tannic, with a bracing core of acidity. Might have guessed a younger mountain Cabernet. Really nice, and still a youngster.

    August 13, 2013 - - Brick color - Heady mix of dark fruits, tannin, and oak, with hints of vanilla. Needs some air time to let the flavors blend and to take the edge off. Drinkable now, but better in a few years. Note to self: hold onto a couple of bottles!

    March 17, 2013 - Deeply colored. Dark notes of black fruits, black tea. Still showing freshness of fruit, but less effusive. The Thomann Station 2006 a far better bottle. This seems a bit less expressive on the palate, the wood obscuring the essential fruit purity: back palate tug of tannin not fully integrated. Didn't open to the same brawny elegance of the Thomann Station.

    October 28, 2012 - smooth balanced wine. no harsh tannins, the extra oak time has done this wine well. it's in a good place. you could drink it now or over next 20 years parker thinks this wine could go 50 years. i wont have the patience to wait that long before drinking my next one.
