    December 30, 2018 - Served with standing pork rib roast, rice, pea pods.
    Opened bottle an hour before serving, decanted 20 minutes before serving. Initial look showed lovely dark crimson, no longer opaque, great color all the way to the rim.

    Smell: lovely, dark fruit, plum, black cherry, a touch of honey, richness.
    Taste: smooth, acid is just enough to play to the fruit and keep things lively. Rich, balanced, elegant, really working well with the roast.
    Will probably hold for years, but really drinking well right now.

    September 1, 2018 - Drinking quite well. Tarry and floral. Quite powerful in the mouth and already with rather expressive aromatics. Tannins in check with the fruit but are quite prominent.

    July 2, 2017 - Beautiful fruit intensity and very drinkable now. Dark cherry, very bright with classic tar and roses. Palate shows nice balance of sweet fruit and acidity. Long finish.
