    August 28, 2017 - No detailed notes, but still drinking well with good fruit. And lots of sediment.

    October 16, 2015 - Consistent with my previous reviews ... this is still a massive, luscious wine.

    February 7, 2015 - Still bold and beautiful. Decanted and poured the first glass immediately ... the woodsy, cedar-y notes as I was pouring into the decanter were powerful, and continued into the glass.

    February 24, 2013 - Big bold Merlot, very good structure and body. Solid early tones, with strong dark fruit. It's probably starting to peak about now, though. So would think to drink any bottles of this vintage within the next 2 years.
