    July 1, 2018 - Acidic and muted fruits mostly define this wine. Blueberry mid palette and cherries on the finish.

    September 24, 2017 - declining from previous experience. The word I have to describe this is ..... Muted. Muted nose, Muted fruit, Muted finish. Still it is a fine wine and better than most

    June 4, 2017 - Coravined this bottle over a six month period. Half full. Still as vibrant as if it was just uncorked. Tannins integrated very nicely. Loads of bright red fruits on the palate. Good wine experience. Still has many years left.

    December 1, 2016 - Had this wine over a 2 night period. The first day it was vanilla and cedar on the nose with similar taste adding blueberry and some blackberry. The second night I sensed it was slightly more methane infused. A similar mouthfeel with the addition of some peppery notes and some prune on the long finish.

    May 24, 2016 - Popped/poured. Got a lot of oak initially, both nose and palate.

    An hour later - the nose has morphed. Relatively aromatic, but much "fresher" than initially. Cab fruit met by a fresh cut field.

    On the palate, I find it to be balanced. The initial oak blast is gone. In its place, decent fruit, acidity, etc. This is no fruit bomb. Some may find it austere. I'm hoping that this will evolve and further integrate, and in the process develop some secondary character. Right now, it comes across as a bit thin, a bit awkward. A teenager. But.....I'm hopeful this might have potential to be better, perhaps much better, in a few years. If I'm wrong, this will be one of the worst QPRs in my cellar.
