    December 7, 2014 - Perfumed combination of cola and spice on the nose, tart cherry on the palate with great acidity and a lingering finish that with emphasis on the cola and earth once again. Really good stuff. This is drinking really well after an hour of air, could use another year or two to hit it's prime, but this is very good juice.

    October 19, 2014 - Still somewhat tight out of the bottle but after a couple of hours after breathing in the bottle it opened up into this fantastic wine. Made dinner a real joy.

    September 17, 2014 - Solid fruit and good acidity. Tart cherry balanced by some earthiness. I think it is just inside of its drinking window. If I had more I would hold for another year.
