    February 9, 2018 - Very nice bouquet- strawberry nose. Nice notes of cranberry and pepper in the mouth, light finish. Decent.

    February 9, 2018 - Nice fresh bouquet- strawberries. Mouth and finish a bit lackluster. Nice pepper and cranberry notes.

    July 13, 2015 - Tonight, I don't like this as much as the last two bottles (see November 23, 2014). Opaque purple with a garnet rim. Nose of plum, prune, cassis, licorice, and vanilla. Medium palate of ripe plum, blackberry, and vanilla with licorice on the finish. Nice silky texture. Good length. Pleasant acidity. Mild tannins. Excessive alcohol interferes with the fruit.

    November 23, 2014 - Still young and delicious. Dark garnet. Nose of plum, black cherry, blackberry, and cedar. Ripe palate of bright, juicy fruit. Excellent length. Nice acidity. Sweet tannins.

    September 27, 2013 - it just is an awkward phase or there isn't much there ... wanted a bit more velvet fruit i love in Merlot ... this one just wasn't quite there. don't get me wrong, this is a good drinkable merlot ... i am just very picky (some would say a bit of a right bank snob)
