    October 13, 2018 - Absolutely delicious. Blackberry, raspberry, mushrooms, leather, earth, minerality, vanilla. Shes powerful and strong, yet her flavors have reached a harmonious balance of strength and grace. Now is the time to open, decant for a minimum of 1 hr, and enjoy with a grilled porterhouse or braised lamb.

    February 10, 2017 - Bottle #1 of 3. Loved it. Huge fruit, still gritty tannins and texture, which we loved. Reminded me of a Carlisle single vineyard Zin, with a drier finish and more "ooomph." Tons of sediment, and the bottle was significantly stained on the inside. This has tons of extract, yet detail, precision and balance. This could go a decade, or possibly more. Wonderful wine, wish I had much more.

    August 28, 2014 - Unique blend, moderate bodied red, slightly short finish , provides a very enjoyable change, and always distinctive.

    January 12, 2014 - Aromas de tabaco, baunilha, ameixas secas e chocolate eram os que mais se destacavam, muito complexo. Encorpado, macio e longo final.
