    November 17, 2018 - Almost a metallic finish. Decanted for 3 hours. Still a good amount of fruit present.

    April 27, 2016 - Funky, old world vibe. Surprising from Virginia. Current, red cherry and taut acidity. Amazing after 8 years old. Tannins still persistent, this can go for several more years. Perfect with Delmonico steak.

    February 4, 2015 - Beautiful wine. I was handsomely rewarded for cellaring this one. Very smooth, delicious. Dark fruit and vanilla.

    September 29, 2014 - Dark fruit and some spice on the finish. Mild tannins. Has improved over past year. Way smoother

    October 20, 2013 - Nice, balanced blend. Dark fruit, plum, and a little spice. Medium tannins. Definitely improved with some age
