    September 13, 2016 - Much improved the second day open from a relatively lean start. Opaque with an inch pour with purple bubbles on the surface. A rich nose with black plum, blackberry, violets, and forest floor. The sip begins moderately soft and swirling the wine in the mouth brings out a delicious juicy black cherry as well as an undertow of firm and dry tannin. The swallow is more leather textured with a light green pepper, and firmly astringent tannin. Overall, a very promising wine from high altitude mountain vineyards to hold longer in hope that the tannin will soften, integrate, and release its grip on the fruit.

    January 10, 2016 - Lovely perfumed nose. Impeccably balanced. Firing on all cylinders now.

    January 1, 2016 - Decanted an hour. Dark cherry, cassis, tobacco with medium body and finish. Drinking well at its peak.
