    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

    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.

    December 12, 2014 - A really great showing for this wine. Not decanted and was ready to ago with 20-30 minutes of air. Great nose with pepper and floral notes. Dark fruit notes are full, but not overdone, and mixed nicely with the secondary notes. Nice long finish.

    October 9, 2013 - Big floral and red fruit nose followed by a dry palate with spice and tannins. This is an interesting mix of spice, tannins and floral flavors. Quite tasty.

    June 9, 2013 - One hour decant. Ruby color. Med/Fast legs. Has changed up a little bit since my last note a year and a half ago. Vegital, Strawberry, Blackberry and Vanilla nose. Tastes of Blackberry, Plum, Strawberry and Oak. Excellent balance. Soft texture. Long finish.
