    September 22, 2017 - Blood red. Aggressive tobacco and cedar nose that lead directly into the attack. The wine was so tight and astringent at first that it was tough. Let it slow-ox for 4 hours and that did the trick. Cigar box took a back seat to black raspberries, chocolate, moist earth, tarragon. Definitely need to let this breath.

    April 30, 2017 - First glass, poured right after the bottle was opened, was tight and primary. Decanted the rest of the bottle and the second glass was much more open. Enjoyed the bottle over several hours, drinking well with a 30-60 minute decant.

    September 11, 2015 - Consistent with other bottles. Yowza. Beautiful, delicate nose and a finish that goes on forever.
