    December 5, 2015 - I opened the bottle and poured through a vintorio. Red fruit on nose, the palate was raspberry and ripe red plums. The full smooth finish brought out hints of nutmeg. Very enjoyable wine and my wife actually rated it a 92+.

    February 8, 2015 - This wine is even better than last tasting. Smooth and supple, perfectly balanced, lots of cherry and red fruit. Simply beautiful.

    September 24, 2014 - I actually enjoyed this more on day one when it had more pronounced dark fruit and Asian spice day two while still very good, it lost some of its vigor.
