    August 31, 2019 - Slight bricking. Leather, barnyard, and a hint of caramel on the nose. Didn't show as well as expected probably due to the lack of an extended decant.

    Structure still very much present but the wine remained closed over the course of 3 hours with tertiary characteristics only peeking out every now and then. Dark fruit, soft tannins, more medium-bodied than expected, medium-long finish. 92+ on this showing but likely to resolve further.
