December 28, 2016 - Initially, the other recent notes were pretty accurate. A little flabby as well. But the more this opened, the quicker it got oxidized. Cork looked in tact. Seemed flawed.

December 14, 2016 - A little sour cherry upon opening but settled in with some air to have nicer raspberry and kir notes and a medium finish

November 29, 2016 - I opened a bottle based on recent notes. Loren's note is pretty spot on. Nice perfume, little bit of blackberry kirsch and red cherries, but a hollow mid palate. Perfectly drinkable bottle, a little on the generic side. Doesn't carry the usual Bedrock weight. I'd say drink up.

November 25, 2016 - T-Day wines (Becklyn, Carlisle, Lillian, RM, Bedrock): Meh. I hoped for more. We ended up recorking and saving for later today in the hopes that it shows better on day 2. It can happen. It is certainly not a bad wine, but just not a lot of distinguishing notes. Very much a very good generic red wine. It was pop and pour, so let's see what some air does to it.
Showing a bit of oxidation on Day 2 (just left on the counter with a cork in it). No improvement, actually not as good. A bit of a disappointment to me. Just a light generic red wine. Probably a sign of the vintage as much as anything. Certainly a nice enough wine, but one hopes for more. I would recommend drinking these soon.1 person found this helpful Comment

October 25, 2016 - Poured from Coravin, drinking well now and much better than expected. The fruit, tannin and acid seemingly coming into better balance. Truly enjoyed this, very little aeration yet overt in its presentation. Would say this is ready to go now.1 person found this helpful Comment
