    October 19, 2019 - Still tight out of the gate. Also a little out of balance.

    Fruit: Cranberry dominant fruit cloaked in herbal and floral notes of rose and potpourri
    Acidity: High (too high relative to fruit)
    Body: Medium-light
    Alcohol: Medium-high
    Tannin: Low

    July 16, 2019 - Light red, minimal Browning. P&P. Nose of leather, cherry, cola and a touch of heat. Palate of bing cherries and cola. No notable tannins, but some alcohol on the finish. Easy and smooth wine. Nice, but still can't see why this costs as much as it does.
