    February 28, 2018 - Had two bottles. 1st May 2015, gripping tannins, ink stain on the teeth, fruit and a little menthol on the nose; last Feb 2018, fresh huge fruit with brambly brushy nose, medium tannins, really nice and plush, good balance, and teeth-coating thick finish, still get the menthol on nose along with cherry.

    December 25, 2009 - Un vin acheté dans une autre vie, 29.60$ en IP. Mes goûts ayant dramatiquement changés depuis l’époque où je ne jurais que par les vins Californiens, ceux-ci croupissent désormais dans un coin sombre et difficilement accessible de ma cave. Mais il faut bien les boire… Le nez est passablement complexe, avec des arômes de café, de petits fruits noirs, de fumée et de baies des champs. La bouche surprend surtout par une texture très soyeuse, presque lisse, signe que le vin a séjourné en cave. Il reste encore beaucoup de matière, et le boisé n’est pas du tout dérangeant. Somme toute, je suis agréablement surpris de son évolution. Il me reste une bouteille de ce cru; je pourrais être tenté de l’insérer en pirate dans une dégustation bordelaise. 89

    March 13, 2008 - Some fruit punch for me on the nose, after decanting for 90 minutes. At 2 hours the wine is just full of life -- berries, spice, mild oak...will consume the rest tonight and update with further notes.
