    February 23, 2012 - This was such a different animal than other floral and full of spice, sour cherry and tar. Great showing.

    January 18, 2012 - plum, cherry, spice and road tar dominate the nose
    Palate seems quite fat....the acid is really prominent as well....not is great place today.
    Finish has good length.....I am going to forget about this wine for 2 years and see where it emerges at 10 years.

    March 10, 2011 - THis is really quite young and got better and better with more needs time.
    Very nice floral, spice, cherry and minerality and a medium+ length finish

    October 2, 2010 - Very different on day three. There is way more fruit here now, implying that this wine is very very young and reticent. If you have some, DON'T DRINK IT YET.

    October 1, 2010 - My comments might seem at odds with my previous rating of 90, but I'll explain. I think this is a well made wine. It has a nice nose, very full palate, excellent finish... It is balanced and complex... but I don't like it. I simply don't like the flavour. Perhaps it is just too old world for me, but I find it very austere, dusty and lacking fruit. There is a great deal of minerality here, but the whole thing is too...serious. Right now, I find I'm more into fruit, and that is what I find this wine lacking in. I think many people will love this, but it's just not my thing right now.
