    April 18, 2020 - Deep garnet in color with a slightly bricking/red edge. Nose of cherries, crushed blackberry, and hints of dark chocolate and leather. Tastes of dark cherries, blackberry, tobacco, and moca. Nice purity of fruit. Fully resolved tannins. Well balanced with slightly pronounced acidity. At its prime. Drink over the next 3-4 years.

    March 30, 2019 - Still drinking nicely. Some earthiness on the nose. Bright acidity, deep color. More fruit would have made it more enjoyable I think. Past prime but still good

    December 6, 2017 - Dark purple in the glass with a black core. Blackberry, cocoa, and cassis on the nose and palate. Full body. Medium acidity. Medium tannins. Probably on the downward trend, but still a satisfying drink.

    September 10, 2017 - PnP. Holding up better than I would have guessed. Still in its prime and very lovely. 13.5%
