    December 14, 2019 - 9th Annual Holiday Dinner and Cellar Raid (Naperville, IL): Part of wine dinner and cellar raid so did not take detailed notes. This was up there with the Revolver (the Fury), although most preferred the former. It's been 9 years since I had this asn I'd say it is just as good today as it was then

    September 6, 2018 - Still drinking nicely though I don't think this has developed over the last 7 years. But good wine, happy to drink it.

    December 31, 2016 - Very nice library wine from the Owen Roe wine club. Blueberry, plum, tobacco, green pepper, quite good. Drink now - 2018.

    November 23, 2016 - Deep garnet with some bricking at rim. 20% new American oak (noticeable, but not overwhelming), with dusty soft tannins, cassis, other sweet and ripe black fruits, vanilla, cracked pepper. A bit boring, and definitely new world in style. Not my thing, but good to have tried.

    April 19, 2015 - This still needs some cellaring, or decanting. Lovely wine, truly Franc aromas of roses and red fruit. Plenty of earth, a few hours in the fruit turned from bright red to more of a stewed blueish variety. Expecting this to get better for 2-3 years.
