    September 19, 2016 - Threw a substantial sediment. Very, very dark in the glass. Rich and slightly musty nose, with mint, lead, earth, and more mint. Not bashful on the palate with flavors again of mint, some gunmetal, above average acid, and still some pretty substantial tannins. This must have been a beast in its youth. Reminds me of the only Heitz Martha's Vineyard I ever tasted, with its strong minty character. Could still use 2-4 years.

    December 13, 2014 - Fruit now showing through as the tannins soften. Still some residual tannins but with a burger softened right up. Tastes right through the mouth, with a 10 second finish. Medium to full bodied. still 12 in the cellar and am now looking forward to drinking them.

    February 14, 2013 - Tabacco on the nose. Berry, earthy, cedar. Long smooth finish and nice legs. Perfect time to enjoy this one. Very happy I have more in the cellar.

    April 20, 2011 - a little tannic (could probably sit for a while longer), plumb, a bit of terpentine
