    April 5, 2015 - Softened nicely after 20 minutes. Still has its fruit but has moved past being too fruit forward. Bit of a tang at finish but wet.

    November 30, 2013 - Cloudy soft ruby; smoky plummy notes with sweet cherry, shrooms, wet clay, underlying faded raspberry-strawberry, some graphite; rich smooth plush mouthfeel; quite low on acidity, but easy going and comforting, with a slight tang on the finish. Nice and at its peak now. 90-91
