    January 2, 2020 - Happily, this Merlot aged well. Part of a New Year’s celebration and all enjoyed the subtle, velvety quality of the wine. Well structured with good red fruit mouthfeel.

    May 24, 2018 - Last of 4 bottles from this vintage. Didn’t know what to expect, concerned that the wine was past its peak. Still a lovely bottle, dark fruit with a touch of cocoa, the tannins are hanging around to provide a solid frame. Moderate finish. Drank with and after dinner, over 2 hours, during which merlot retained all of its initial appeal.

    November 23, 2016 - Wasn't expecting much from this bottle, but it really exceeded my expectations. The nose had a nice dark berry with a hint of cocoa. The overall structure was in balance right away and developed well with some air. I liked the taste initially, with red fruits and berries had slight restrained feel but as the wine loosened up with air the flavors exploded. This wine seems to be right in its prime, highly recommended.

    January 16, 2016 - Deep purple color. There is moderate sediment in the bottle. Big fruit flavors - blueberry, strawberry, cherry. Limited tannins. Structure is nice but the flavors are getting better integrated with a medium finish. The secret is decanting. I gave it 2 hours and it needed it otherwise the fruit is too big.
