    April 16, 2016 - Decanted for an hour. Not as vibrant as previous bottles...tasted tired. All the notes were there but just no oomph. Bottle variation?

    April 3, 2016 - This seemed much more ready to drink than the bottle I had in late February. However, it still improved from night one until we finished the bottle on night three. In between the bottle was vacuum sealed and refrigerated. The rating is rated based on night three.

    April 2, 2016 - Unscrewed and served with food (risotto with zucchini and saffron). Followed for about three hours, both with food and on its own.
    Good rich flavors of grapes, and black fruits. A little cola note along with black cherries. Shows a touch of sweetness from ripe fruit. Touch of oak on the finish.
    A good wine but not outstanding.

    March 17, 2016 - Very light color almost pink and translucent. On the nose mostly strawberries. On the palate it's light and balanced cherries and berries. No acid or tannin to speak of. Easy finish. Just a light easy drinker very balanced and food friendly.
