    April 19, 2015 - Just keeps getting better.....3 hours after opening the bouquet is splendid and robust. This is a wine to savor...selfishly!!!!

    February 25, 2015 - Classic Rioja nose, showing signs of that American oak (dill note). Quite beautiful on the palate. Would have scored higher but kept getting a slightly rough note right at the end.

    February 24, 2015 - Dinner at RPM Steak (RPM Steak - Chicago, IL): Another brilliant showing. A bit of dill on the nose with beautiful dried roses, some earth, and cherries. Textbook rioja aromas! The palate was airy and layered. Deep rose and cherry tones with beautiful earthy and brown sugar notes. Awesome wine.
