    April 30, 2020 - Cellared since release, cork stained 1/4 of the way up, perfect fill. Dark red core, lightening but no bricking at rim. Cherry, cassis, strawberry, touch of alcoholic heat on the nose. Medium body, good balance, a bit of earthy complexity, grainy tannins, medium-long finish. No signs of going over the hill any time soon. Excellent.

    June 1, 2017 - Cork bottle. Purchased at winery. Much better than screw bottle. Youthful great deep color and fruit. Very pleasant surprise!!

    December 31, 2013 - Cork Closure. Pop and poured. A little hot from the start with medium tannins. Strawberry, Cherry and Tobacco with a nice finish. Opened up a little but not super complex. Nice showing nonetheless.

    November 19, 2013 - definitely not my favorite - a lot of green pepper notes.

    October 13, 2013 - Cork closure. A WOW wine, with explosive aromas and flavors. Quite a mouthful, with 14.7% alcohol. The medium (++) tannins indicate it may still have quite a few years left.
