    July 4, 2020 - Well I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable July 4th. I took my own advice as the last comment I made on Friday's bottle of wine (a Peter Michael Pinot Noir) was Syrah goes best with BBQ and it did. I opened this bottle about 6 hours prior to dinner and let it slow ox. It had dark berries and charred meat on the nose. The palate was darked berries, roasted plums, charred meat and a little tree bark. The finish is the "Saxum Finish" which is almost forever. The last time I tried a bottle was in January of 2017 and according to my noes it has slipped a bit with regard to the flavors coming out on the finish. I have lots of 09's and 10's and 11's as well as all the newer vintages in my cellar that I shoud be drinking on a more regular basis but my wife is a cab and pinot noir fan and not into the Rhone blends so it is not often that I get to open a bottle. Oh well the trials and tribulations of a wine collector. Well it will be pinot noir for me tonight. Happy Sunday everyone.

    June 1, 2020 - Drank from Corovin over multiple days. Plum and other dark fruits. Lacks the complexity of the better vintages.

    November 28, 2019 - Similar to prior note after a 2 hr decant, but perhaps it lost a little something after the decant; still delicious, but less opulent

    November 24, 2019 - Just lovely. At a perfect point to consume. Two hour decant.
