    April 9, 2022 - Bad cork (gain); luckily I brought the Durand. Enjoyed with apps and a meal over a few hours; this is engaging, companionable juice, and a hit with the ladies. No really signs of falling off; this was my third off four.

    March 16, 2022 - No formal notes, ready after splash decant. Starting to develop but in a good place now. Relatively big-boned but restrained.

    January 21, 2022 - Only one word here.....CONSISTENCY.......a solid 94 pts. on my last 3 bottles.....beautiful integrated , pencil shavings, cedar, blueberries with silky tannins ending with a solid long finish. Master piece from Larkmead vineyards.

    November 27, 2021 - Decanted with light sed 1-2 hours prior to drinking. Still dark ruby, no bricking. Nose of dark red fruits, floral. Still young fresh and fleshy on front end. Tight tannins that still needed time but did open a little as the night wore on. Good length. I still have a few 11s and 12s in the cellar and per this bottle am in no rush to open them.
