    June 20, 2012 - This has a nice nose but the palate is a bit unfocused

    June 9, 2012 - Black fruit aromas with a firm and taut palate. Black and red fruit palate with whispers of charcoal.

    May 12, 2012 - this bottle no longer exists. it probably went into my belly a year ago.

    April 9, 2011 - Deep Purple!!! Pronounced aromatics. raspberry fruit, but not so rich and fat. tempered by a real harmonious perfumed high-toned minerality (see previous note's 'bug spray'). palate expresses medium/med+ tannin, m+ acid, m+ body. a peppery/whole cluster note jumps out on the palate. thoughts of dr. pepper. lilac aromas. again, this is the balls.

    March 17, 2011 - Drank alongside the 06 Immortal. Compared favorably but I would drink these now.
