    May 26, 2019 - Very well integrated with fruit and structure still present. Silky smooth tannins, with a medium finish. Drink now.

    August 14, 2016 - Healthy ruby appearance. Complex bouquet continually evolves in the glass. Earthy, black raspberry, cherry, and forest floor aromas over notes of hard candy, walnut shell, and a hint of granite minerality. Long, structured, and penetrating, with tons of energy and drive. Shows ideal weight, succulent black fruit flavors, cassis sweetness, and a beautiful herbal character. Continued to improve throughout the night. Elegant, vinous, and at its supreme peak.

    August 21, 2015 - Consistent with notes from 2013. Cigar box, mushroom, cola, black and blue berries. Medium garnet color, smooth, well integrated tannins and a long finish. The eucalyptus I normally expect from Bosche was more subdued than usual, possibly duets age. Never the less, still very drinkable. Will likely hold up for another couple of years but why wait? Drank side by side with a 1999 Sycamore, always a fun comparison of stablemates.

    January 23, 2015 - Full on cigar box with very ripe (not overripe) blackberries, blueberries and plumb. Very smooth at this stage and much better than the rough and tumble wine I remember upon first release. This wine has at least a couple more peak years in it.

    April 19, 2014 - Even better than the last bottle--probably because we didn't have to share it with anybody. :)

Asian style roasted pork belly with Asian garlic noodles and green beans! The wine stood up well to all flavors.
