    December 15, 2019 - Blueberry and blackberry fruit, dense and dark. Secondary notes of graphite, espresso, tobacco, moss, florals, and bazooka bubblegum. Decanted for 4 hours, but could've used even more air time. Chewy tannins, 40-second finish. Still improving.

    October 2, 2019 - Flawless drinking but lacking the length and tannins to make this truly impressive. Decanted 2 hours before tasting but held up well for balance of the evening. A pleasant drink!

    April 5, 2018 - Great wine drank with a 2008 Ovid at dinner. Long finish and deep almost black look to it. Nose was full of lot s of red ripe fruit. This just kept getting better and better as the dinner went on. Tannins still very present and this wine has lots of life left to cellar. Great experience.

    January 10, 2018 - Winorama: A winter in Wineland II; 1/6/2018-1/14/2018 (Portland, Eureka, Napa): Tasted at the winery from a 375. Darker in nature than the Melbury. This is all black fruits. There's a volcanic ash sense to it which adds character. A bit more tannin. And this super long finish that goes on and on. Very nice.
