    October 7, 2013 - Still surprisingly youthful. Lots of red fruit still on the nose and a long finish. Keeping the other bottle for a few more years.

    October 16, 2009 - Really enjoyed this - full, rich flavours of fruit. Decanted 2 hrs before drinking: really benefitted from this.

    April 4, 2009 - Really enjoyed - bit of fruit but nice earthiness & great balance. Sadly takes this price point to make this wine but yummy!

    May 25, 2008 - Purple, plum, dark cherry in color. Some early fruit on nose, followed by hints of forest wood, leather, mushroom and earth. Balanced with medium body, but a bit on the light side. Probably will cellar well for several more years, but is drinking nicely now.Medium finish. Spousal unit gives it an 88....I put it somewhat lower at 86. We settled for an 87. A very pleasant wine....it's a bordeaux blend, but it is NOT a Boredeaux.
