    September 8, 2019 - Ripe plum, strawberry and blueberry fruit with nice floral aromas. Drinking well now. Turning the corner to the raisiny character.

    March 6, 2019 - Dark ruby with mild clearing - appears unfiltered
    Medium aromas of dusty raisinated cherry and smoke - medium oak influence
    Sort of a cardboard aroma which does not blow off but doesn't appear corked otherwise
    Medium(+) palate of sweet red fruit
    Medium(+) acidity and great length with medium/medium(+) tannins
    This is a nice representative but a little ripe/ raisinated in my opinion to be deemed a quality wine

    Interesting to see my tasting notes and the difference I am now seeing with previous CT notes…Maybe an off bottle or just not my type of wine

    March 4, 2019 - Single blind tasting
    Purple brown color with clear rim
    Medium aromatics of dark prunes. Some oak and an issue with cardboard.
    Medium + acidity. Medium tannins
    Palate of smoke, dark ripe fruits and chocolate.
    Rounded mouth feel with reasonable finish.
    I feel the nose created the lower score.

    January 27, 2019 - Much improved over almost a year ago. Took about an hour to fully open up in the decanter and paired nicely with beef stew. A little thin on the mid-palate right now, which leads into a tannic, slightly hot finish. Still feels like it needs a little more sleep. Drink 2020-2024. Technical score: 90. Enjoyment score: 91.

    January 19, 2019 - It took forever for the aromatics to open on this blend of monastrell, syrah and garnacha. Violets, wild huckleberries, pencil and dried rosemary. Flavors tart with plums, blueberries, blackberries. Unctuous and thick. Long in finish. Hint of licorice. Full bodied and high and alcohol level obvious.
