    June 19, 2015 - Very nice, very smooth. Little to no hint on tannin but plenty dry. Absolutely no alcohol bite. Juicy and delicious. Don't see more age helping.

    May 24, 2015 - Decanted at 8am and drank @ 2pm. Initial tasting had me worried as you could tell it was past its peak. Color was light brown but once poured in the glasses it continued to open up and drank very well. Fruit came forward with a very peppery finish. Every one really enjoyed it. If you still have any of the 2005 suggest you decant for several hours and drink them now!

    February 8, 2015 - Winter Birds and Waterfowl Wine Event (Judith's House, WI): Very dark red/purple color. PNP, drank 1 glass over an hour. The nose has plenty of blackberry and cassis. The palate has glycerin, blackberry liqueur, medium plus body, blueberry, sweet fruit, good length, wood and some heat. Much better than the last bottle and more typical in general. I'd probably polish these off with the next couple years.

    January 18, 2015 - Deep dark purple in the glass. On the nose: powdered cocoa, dark cherry, and poblano pepper. On the palate: Very tannic with good acidity. tart fruit and zesty mouth feel but not overly complex. Very slight green pepper component on the medium finish but not off-putting.
