    April 17, 2016 - Medium garnet with lightly floral ripe strawberry with lilac nose. Tart light red berry, fairly light body and fruit with nicely balanced acid, some flinty mineral and smoothly integrated tannins. Strawberries, red currants and pie cherries cover the fruit spectrum. Drinking beautifully now with a night on the counter. If scoring, I would put this in the 92-93 range with an AFWE proviso. I like this a lot.

    February 19, 2016 - Dark garnet with strawberry, cherry & lilac nose. Dry mineral, light fruit with earthy tannins. Lightly fruity on night one, morphing into restrained tart fruit with light chewy tannins with some bitter stone fruit on night two. The fresh fruit was more appealing last night over the restrained nature tonight which is not usually the case for me. Let's see where this ends up. Just OK on it's own and would be better with food. In deference to Bob, I will not rate, but if I did I would say a 89 to be charitable, last night I had it in the 91 range and was looking for improvement which did not materialize. Drink it for the fruit on night one. Skip night two and go directly to night three. Nicely restrained acid focus, strawberry and raspberry and just a hint of bitter well integrated tannins. Let's say a 92 tonight.

    November 10, 2015 - Nice purity of fruit, cherry raspberry and maybe some baking spice, balanced acidity. Really a nice tribute.
