    August 21, 2018 - Well liked by my guests, even serving it with salmon. I throughly enjoyed it. Powerful blend that had the right amount of time to open up the tannins and fruitness of this beauty.

    February 24, 2018 - Nice complexity resulting from the blend of 42% cabernet, 30% syrah, 20% merlot and 8% malbec. My friends and I have enjoyed several bottles of this over the years. Well liked at a recent tasting. Still going strong in early 2018.

    November 29, 2017 - love this blend, it has gotten better and better over the years. Benefit of having a cellar. I still decant it for 2 hours.

    January 29, 2017 - Either very mediocre made wine or was flawed...

    June 21, 2014 - This was just beautiful from opening to the last glass. Nose: black cherry, red fruit, leather and a violet note. Palate: well resolved with medium body. Not one bit over done. Balance of red fruit, blackberry and leather / tobacco tones. Finish: Good depth growing darker on the finish with nice cabernet herb notes.

    Highly recommend.
