    November 22, 2020 - Interesting. Black cherry, pomegranate and charcoal. Zippy acidity, which is great and impressive for its age. Wish it had more fruit and complexity to balance. Best after 15-30 minutes of air. More fruit loss after two hours, but the pleasant sour flinty flavor and zip remains. Enjoyable but I liked this more a few years ago. Drink up.

    February 9, 2019 - Exceptional wine! Needs to open a bit so I would decant if you need to drink it soon after opening. The wet rock is so distinctive. Very enjoyable!

    February 5, 2018 - Vivid red color. Just a hint of reduction in the nose keeps the wine in the deeper bass notes. Dark berry, pomegranate with notes of flint/crushed rocks and anise and smoky herbs. Entry is very bright and tangy with distinctive citrus and tart cherry and cranberry flavors. The reduction carries onto the palate as well with hints of struck flint. There is a real sap to the front and middle with weightlessness due to the refreshing acid. The tannins are not yet resolved and the wine can go for a few more years for sure.

    January 22, 2018 - Black cherry, blackberry fruit. This has mellowed considerably- very food friendly. A bit of bitterness and finishing heat detracts from an otherwise elegant wine.
