    December 1, 2014 - Time has turned this into a v. pleasant wine; still some life and verve left, and it has a pleasing honesty to it; ready

    April 16, 2013 - Sour cherry and mineral character. Very tart medium-length finish with soft tannins. Too acidic to drink on its own, but a versatile food accompaniment.

    April 9, 2013 - Solid lower end Burgundy here. Got some nice secondary complexities on the nose next to it's fruit. A bit perfumed showing some of that iron. More palate weight than many low end Burgs show with nice length lended by strong acidity bright at the finish. Expected less than I got. A very nice dinner wine. Showed prominent oxidation on the second night though it was far from done. This should go a few more years and could even improve a tick. I wouldn't want to age this real long though. Nice.

    March 12, 2013 - Sour cherry and raspberry and not much else. A decent food wine, but very acidic. Better on day 2.
