    October 9, 2021 - Similar to prior note after a 2 hour double decant; delicious, but didn't wait long enough, drink or preferably hold

    May 21, 2021 - Excellent showing. Still quite youthful, although the structure has softened a bit and is accessible. Dark fruited and nicely textured.

    March 24, 2021 - Double decanted for 2 hrs, deep ruby/purple, dark fruit, a touch grapey, med. tannins. med. finish; delicious, but tasted younger than previous bottle (new batch), hold for a year or 2

    February 27, 2021 - Let it breathe in the bottle for 1 hour. Nice bouquet of dark fruit and spice. Medium-to-full bodied, good balance, quite approachable, and smooth, integrated tannins - somewhat of a weak structure though, loosely defined around the edges. Very good fruit flavors of black cherry, blackberry, and plum, with some cassis and a bit of oak; however, i don't rate this as "jammy", it is more like a precursor to jammy - thus just right in my preference. Nice long-ish finish of black cherry. It paired very well with a dinner of lamb chops. I think this has at least 1 more year left before it peaks and the downslope begins; but my bottle did not spend the whole time in my wine cave, so those which have been constantly cellared may see a peak 2 or more years from now. My exact rating is 92.8. Delicious wine.
