    July 8, 2016 - After 30 minutes of opening very fruity. 2-1/2 hours after opening, truffles and raspberries predominate. Served w grilled baby back ribs and grilled chicken.

    June 27, 2016 - full of vigor, a wallop of alcohol and jam, a nose that traveled across the table. Alcohol overwhelming the jam at this point but a few more enjoyable years left

    October 7, 2014 - This aged beautifully. Well balanced with just a hint of sweet black/red fruit. Not cloying at all. A bit of sediment and still has the acidity to keep it together. Smooth tannins. Drink this beauty now-2015. Don't wait too long and risk it. It's a great wine right NOW.

    September 26, 2014 - Tremendous nose. Black berry, currant, sweet cedar, and herb on the nose. Rich, deep, bramble fruit on the palate. Well-integrated tannin, medium acid, medium finish. Good amount of sweet cedar oak, but well integrated. Yummy.
