    February 4, 2019 - Expected more. Decanted over an hour and softened a bit but still Harsh and edgy. Plenty of stuffing to arrive at something great but disjointed. Others agreed Maybe more time in bottle?

    January 20, 2019 - Opened 6 hours before dinner. Red fruit on the nose with hints of spices. The palate was dark red berries, plums, a touch of chocolate and a hint of spice. The finish is typical Saxum and just goes on and on. I do not thing it was as good as the bottle i had in November. The reason could be we drank it alongside a Saxum Broken Stones which was the better of the two wines. Anyway for those of you who know me tomorrow I begin myself imposed 91 days of sobriety and my low carb diet. My annual cleanse the temple routine so I will be reading the posts everyday but not posting again till around April 22nd. So good drinking everyone.

    January 17, 2019 - I was disappointed by this wine given JB’s critical acclaim. It was boring, muted, didn’t give much at all. I’m thinking Saxum’s may be best in their infancy. Just had a decent Paderewski but again, maybe less a mouthful than I expected.

    January 13, 2019 - Not a great bottle of wine. Bought from WineBid. It was much lighter than expected and very acidic. Fruit was not very rich or deep. Maybe just an off bottle or badly stored. Much better syrups for $30-40.
