November 18, 2013 - Drank from a 6L bottle. This has smoothed out a bit, and drinks pretty nice right now. Still has a nice rich, round palate, full of blackberry, with a lot going on - The Zin really shows through, and the other varietals accompany nicely. Could sit for a while longer, but tasty right now.

November 3, 2012 - maybe a bit past peak, lacked some fruit

October 17, 2012 - Nice bottle of wine. Need to re evaluate current vintages as price has gone up and not sure worth he current price.
September 30, 2012 - Candied cherries and raspberry liquour. Blackberry jam, but with lots of backbone due to the cabernet. A hint of oak and a little pepper spice at the end. Very delicous.
