    August 31, 2018 - At nine years old, this is medium purple with a surprisingly youthful color. The nose is packed with dark cherry and woody, oaky undertones upon opening. With air, the fruit became deeper and the oaky notes faded. On the palate, this powerful wine is packed with youthful cherry and tart cranberry flavors. There is excellent acidity as well as a silky, medium-bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is incredibly food friendly and paired well with roasted beets with chorizo and Moroccan spice, octopus in a spicy tomato-based sauce, and grilled sweet potato. The wine brought out amazing smoky notes with the food, and the acidity stood up to a variety of flavors and depths. Overall, this maintained youthful fruit and food friendly acidity, and as a result, this will last another 3-5 years but should be paired with food that has a smokey, Indian/Moroccan profile to bring out its full potential. 88 alone, but 92 with the right pairing.

    July 13, 2018 - quite special. Very deep and profound berry fruits with a healthy does of minerals/spice. With air, acidity kicks in, but I have to say I prefer the first 15 minutes as it shows a powerful side of Anthill I don't normally associate these wines with.

    May 7, 2018 - Big and serious. Brooding. Not your typical Pinot fruit here. Solid minerality and gamey meat. Dark black cherry. Just a faint hint of birch beer. Very enjoyable, but quite different.
