    September 8, 2017 - PnP, initially very subdued and restrained, drank over 4 hours and in which time it opened up significantly to reveal a beautiful wine!

    August 7, 2017 - From a 1.5L. Nice inviting nose of red fruits, the wine took a couple hours to open up after being very tight initially from POP. Red cherry and cranberry fruit with subtle oak spice, did not get the chocolate that other tasters have noted. Tannins did subside with air, but this big bottle format needed more time, like 5-10 years to show its best. Pulled the cork a bit too soon, but very tasty wine nonetheless.

    March 12, 2017 - Perfumed aromatics on the nose. On the palate, medium to medium-heavy in body. On the palate, "resolved" as another recent reviewer suggested. In a somewhat primary way - still pretty linear from front to back. Tasty, if not terribly complex.

    October 22, 2016 - This wine is fully resolved at this point. Nose of deep, dark fruit and chocolate. Palate is dark fruits, dried herbs, and that leather character you start to get with aged Cabernet. Tannins have mostly melted away, but you still have just a hint of that dark chocolate dryness through the medium plus finish.

    January 9, 2016 - Deep ruby color and medium plus aromas of menthol, pork fat, with black fruits filling the background, black berry black cherry. On the palate medium plus bodied, with the concentrated black fruits following from the nose, tannins are fine grained and holding.
