    October 30, 2015 - Nice. A mouthful of fruit upfront, smooth but noticeable tannin on the finish, everything well integrated. Seems to be opening up on the mid-palate with some more air. No bricking, no fading, sure seems like it'd hold a while, though there's nothing going on in my first glass to suggest it's going to get better either.

    May 1, 2011 - Decanted for 90 minutes before drinking. The nose was a blast of red fruit. After 90 minutes, the tannins were upfront and the wine was a bit disjointed. By the last glass, the wine was very well integrated. Will buy more to hold for a few more years. Good effort.

    December 4, 2010 - just okay for me, there are much better wines at better value out there.

    September 30, 2010 - I liked this quite a bit. Classic cassis, smoke, menthol with a hint of green olive. Mineral tinged, the fruit is dark and sweet, but not overextracted, while tannins are medium. Drink now and over the next 3-5 years.

    September 15, 2010 - Fairly consistent with prior notes, but this time I'm noticing there's actually quite a bit of citrus in the mouth. Pretty unusual. This isn't my typical style of wine, but I really like this stuff.
