    March 23, 2019 - Wonderful juice! Still very fresh, balanced and smooth with no tannin. Cassis and blackberry on the palate with some cedar, earth and spice.

    February 14, 2019 - Wow. Still showing so much fruit. Velvety tannins. Had with bone in filets. Heaven. ��

    January 2, 2019 - A very nice bottle with a deep, earthy nose. Fresh, mInty, basil notes akin to Martha’s Vineyard mint, boysenberry, earthy savory notes that belie the age of the wine. Very fine, drink any time.

    November 5, 2018 - Fully mature. Sweet Portwine notes. Alcohol very present. Too modern and sweet. Unbalanced. Poor bottle as I have liked this wine better in the past. 89/100

    November 3, 2018 - This drinks well after about 2 hours in the decanter. It will never be much better due to the vintage, but is very good.
