    July 18, 2020 - Attention getting nose; beautiful ruby color with no sediment; black raspberry on the palate with some acid and a lemon rind twist on a modest but pleasing finish.
    Paired nicely with pasta and a basil/tomato sauce.

    April 1, 2020 - Mid ruby colour with a browning rim. Aromas of wet bark, liquorice stick, moist earth/compost and sour cherries. There is a softcore of fruit with a red cherry paste or pastille, medium in weight, vibrant acidity, making the wine feel tart yet fresh, but then a syrup overlay creeps in showing the wine evolution. It has seen better days. Luckily the last bottle.
