    February 1, 2020 - Fan favorite of night. Drinking beautifully. Soft but still very much intact.

    December 8, 2019 - 2 bottle at the opal in santa Barbara. Actually tight until a bit of a decant blossomed it into silky magic. Enjoy now, or soon!

    November 21, 2019 - Drank a split, nose was beautiful and the flavors are soft and delicious. Slightly sweet and hints of tobacco and berries. Still plenty of time for this wine.

    August 11, 2019 - Always a favorite. Amazing clarity, depth and balance. A truly elegant wine that is drinking very nicely (and will for years to come).

    May 21, 2019 - One of the best bottles I’ve had. Paired well with a center cut filet finished in a Barolo reduction. Just awesome. Medium sedementation may hold another year but drink now
