    January 16, 2022 - Dens garnet red. Intense but elegant nose flavors of black berries and prune and cherry combined with some licorice fresh brewed coffee notes. Full bodied with subtle tannin structure and long finish.

    December 31, 2021 - Decanted several hours and consumed with a roast filet. Delicious wine, a perfect mix of bright acidity, fine tannins and black fruit.

    December 19, 2021 - Popped and poured straight from the cellar which was a mistake. Even after several hours this never really got going. The nose was subdued showing notions of blackberries, dark cherry and an espresso note in the background. Not much on the palate with quite pronounced tannins. Perhaps this bottle was in a dumb phase. Fingers are crossed on the remaining ones in my cellar. Not rated.

    October 23, 2021 - Three years later my rating stands at 95 with potential to age to 96-97. Power without weight is how I describe this wine. It has put on more weight and increased in intensity yet it’s beautifully understated. Incredible pairing for Tuscan style cuisine. If I had a more bottles I would drink in another 3 years.

    October 23, 2021 - It’s getting better and better! Deep crimson red with purple reflexes seducing complex flavors of ripe cherry blackberry blueberry and fresh brewed coffee some dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla full bodied with soft tannins and super long and persistent finish. At the beginning of its apogee
