    May 12, 2019 - W roast chicken. This was interesting but not super. Lots of sediment in this bottle. Still just very interesting to taste.

    March 21, 2019 - Upon opening, the nose had scents of sage, menthol, wood shavings, meat, and juicy blackberries. The palate had more of a dried red fruit vibe, although the flavor profile moved progressively blacker as it opened up. Even though it has a very dark red/purple appearance, it is medium in body, and has a very appealing balanced acidity. The finish lasts 30-40 seconds. At this point, a 2 hour+ decant will definitely add to its appeal.

    March 16, 2019 - No formal note, PnP, which probably did not do it justice, it had a dumbed down demeanor most of the time in the glass, I am thinking more air time would allow it to express itself more fully.
