    February 15, 2020 - A powerhouse. Big and bold. Intoxicating nose - black and blue fruits. Mostly blueberries on the palate, with a healthy dose of chocolate. Rich and viscous with a stellar finish. The bodacious fruit somewhat masks the high (16.1%) octane. Not opressively tannic, but there's enough structure to indicate a long life ahead.

    April 29, 2019 - Decanter 30 minutes ~ Murky dark garnet (red beets), vanilla Indian spices caramelized berries on the nose with a little heat, full bodied glazed blue berries spring fennel, long finish almost a minute with creme brelee after taste.

    July 23, 2018 - Book Club - Grand Finale (FMIII in the OC): Very dark. Splash decant and then we jumped right in. Others we're that thrilled with this bottle but I thought it worked well with the berry cobbler. No question, it's in your face. Tar, Blueberry, and Raspberry fruit. The blue fruit really pops when paired with blackberries.

    July 21, 2018 - Some wines with friends (My House In The South OC): Splash decanted three times and returned to bottle, served as the anchor wine for the berry cobble dessert we paired with it. Re-tasting 12 hours later from the remnants left in the bottle from last night. In candor, I found the wine boozy last night and it turned me off. Listed at 16.1% on the bottle so I shouldn't be surprised. This is much better this AM, as the alcohol signature is far less present. Now, it shows a lot of chocolate, dark fruit, herb, and some tannin grip still present. Plush and packed with flavor. Decant this well if you drink now and enjoy. True SR PS here.

    April 10, 2018 - Really fantastic. Not as black as other petites I've had but who cares? Fragrant, potent, tannic, and it puts on weight as it sits in the glass. On evening two, it was and vibrant. Really great stuff and I wish I had another bottle to see how it's going to age. A treat.
