    February 28, 2017 - Plump blackberry, incense, strong vanilla and wood notes. Crazy that its still showing something given its age. Peppery finish. Not complex, but a nice finish.

    November 3, 2011 - Surprisingly good drink. Drank cool, with no food, and was smooth, not overly fruity, and nicely balanced blend.

    August 7, 2011 - Very dark aromas of blackberry and even a little chai tea. Full bodied and inky mouthfeel. Very true and intense blackberry flavor. All most too big. Tannins almost all the way resolved. New world all the way.
