    August 30, 2016 - Full bodied, tannins way toned down, past prime, fine but one dimensional

    January 1, 2014 - Strong vanilla on top of plum and black cherry notes for the nose. Almost syrupy thick mouthfeel with negligible tannic structure. Solid fruit flavors, yet any complexity that might have been there has past. Not at all disappointed with this or the previous bottle, as my wife and I enjoy a mature wine on occasion.

    November 23, 2013 - Heady nose of plum, cocoa, vanilla and blackberry. Full bodied with a think mouthfeel and completely integrated tannins. Plenty of fruit mid and forward palate, yet not overwhelming although a bit gamey. Medium length finish, somewhat chalky aftertaste. Throws a fair amount of sediment at the end. Intended to save the other bottle for awhile, but this may be just past prime.

    July 26, 2013 - Drunk over 3 days & held up well. More restrained than most Shiraz & better for it. Some sweet fruits, leather & chocolate. Finishes well still with a tannin kick
