    October 20, 2019 - Incredible wine that just kept evolving over the four hours it was open. Lots of barnyard funk and Brett when first opened. That blew off and aromas of violets were pronounced. An hour later, stewed dark cherries and plums came to the fore. Smooth and balanced

    September 2, 2019 - I don't know...maybe poor storage, not great. High acid, juicy. Good nose though

    August 23, 2019 - Feels a bit old and tired. Lots of leather and maybe some horse blanket. I assume it’s because of the machine. There’s a very little bit of fruit in the background.

    August 21, 2019 - Well aged but started out at 93 after 2 hours was a strong 95. Well integrated and just delicious. Finish had a subtle clove scent.

    July 18, 2019 - Clear ruby with some hint of garnet on edges. Notes of blackberry, smoked meats, truffles, and licorice on nose and palate. Dry, med body, med acidity, smooth tannins. This wine is drinking very well right now.
