    February 23, 2017 - Very nice old wine. Fully integrated but little fruit remaining. Should be consumed in the next year.

    March 12, 2014 - Not at all what I expected. This wine could pass for an aged Rioja. The nose shows mostly integrated oak elements; the wine must have undergone heavy oak treatment. The palate is soft, with excellent acid and very low tannin. I agree with Rezy13 that this is not a particularly complex wine...unless one were to count the diverse oak elements as layers. I would have appreciated the opportunity to sneak this into a blind Rioja tasting. Most tasters probably would not have been able to single it out. Stylistically, for those that appreciate Rioja-like wines, this probably has not peaked, as the acid is going strong. Not my thing, but without flaws.

    May 21, 2013 - Dull ruby all the way to the rim, little signs of age; nose is ripe and sweet with an aldehyde note, tart dark fruit, and some bell pepper/jalapeno; very tasty, dusty, maybe a hint of clay, thought this was kind of simple but it was just so balanced it was unassuming.
