    February 27, 2019 - 1 of only 1 for me here (do have a couple '07s), and it's drinking aged but well at this time. Still a dense ruby color to it. Aromas of black and blue fruits, maybe some dark red as well, licorice, graphite, balsamic, dark chocolate, walnut, eucalyptus, and damp earth. Medium body, medium (+) acid and finish, with flavors of dark fruits, fairly strong minerality, balsamic, and drying leather/black tea on the back end. Has a real Bordeaux vibe. Wasn't exactly sure how to pair the Tuscan balsamic sausage and grapes recipe we tried out tonight, but it worked well; otherwise I'd say steak and red meat dishes would be the call here. 90+

    June 12, 2018 - Absolutely de-e-e-licious. Just the right blend of Cabernet, Merlot, and Petit Verdot for this cowboy. Beautiful fuchsia color. I love the elderberry/mulberry fruit aspect that the PV adds. Last bottle, but I could drink this stuff every night. This is peak drinking right now, and will probably only head downhill from here. Drink in the next 3 years or so, I'd guess.

    November 9, 2017 - Very smooth and balanced at this stage. Soft red cherry and a subtle toast factor. Drink now.

    February 4, 2016 - Anything Goes When Thai Food and Wine Collide - NYC Wine Tasting Group (Kuma Inn, NY, NY): Lives up to its Bourdeaux like blend. A big solid wine, more french than italian. With about 30 mins of air, this wine was very inviting. Certainly can benefit from more time in the cellar but this one is open for business. Close to a 90.5.

    April 16, 2015 - Initially tight. After breathing, it opened up nicely. Rich, dark fruit and mocha flavor with serious backbone. The more I drank, the more I liked it.
