    January 17, 2015 - Maroon to brick. Smells like a smoked baseball mitt and dried rose petals. Sour cherry and caramel are heavily counterbalanced with cedar, tobacco, wood smoke and leather. This turned heads at an Italian meal - was a recognition of how amazingly different a bottle of fermented grape juice can be when you step outside your comfort zone. Timing seems just right, tannins in the sweet spot. 92+

    January 5, 2015 - Still tastes raw and youthful. Sour cherries and leather. Very enjoyable. A nice surprise on list at Marta in NYC and fairly priced.

    January 2, 2015 - De la mûre, cerise noire, belle acidité. Des tannins charpentés. J'adore, comme toujorus avec les vieux Calabretta.
