    August 10, 2014 - Dark ruby color, almost black. Red fruit aroma with pine and pepper notes. Full bodied with still tight fruit and prominent tannins. Needs even more time to develop and soften up. Had another 10 years life into it. I would open the next bottle in 3-5 years. It was a magnum bottle with minimal sediment.

    October 20, 2013 - The obligatory "cab-lovers merlot" - in that it is massively cassis based, hints of oak, dry spice, nice tannins, dark cherries. Was great with a ribeye, might continue to develop for another year.

    May 30, 2013 - Wife drank it while I was away. Chalky on the finish with lots of smooth fruit up front.

    February 12, 2012 - Lovely blueberry & rich drk chocolate nose. Blueberry & perfectly balanced acidity on the palate with medium long finish. This would be easy to mistake as a wonderful right bank St Emilion.
