    March 30, 2019 - Amazing nose of cherry, licorice, dark chocolate, hazelnut and cracked black pepper. The palate is richness and opulence wrapped in a soft, silky robe, with dark berries, black cherries and smoked bacon for miles. Equal measure of fruitiness and acidity. The finish is tinged with raisiny complexity and lasts longer than a minute. Outstanding!

    March 23, 2019 - Based on prior experience with this wine, I uncorked it 4 hours or so before starting to drink it. Dark purple. Savory. Layers of complexity and soft, rich tannins. Paired really well with grilled pork loin. The sediment was almost oily.
