    October 19, 2023 - Very well aged Rioja. PNP Leather, pepper, so good

    October 11, 2023 - Decanted 2 Hrs. Starts off a bit Bordeaux-ish aromatically; cedar, dark cassis, earth some mature French oak aromas. More classically Rioja once the drinking gets going with the telltale of dark berries, pronounced acidity, a bit of shoe polish / leather and the aforementioned of well-integrated French Oak. In a great spot and likely to easily hold another decade if not longer.

    August 21, 2023 - Been a few years since last bottle. Steaks and roasted potatoes at home with Val and Charlotte. Decanted for 30 minutes.

    from prior notes (2020):" Deep ruby color. Nose showing dark red fruits, cedar, violets, smoke. Palate of dark raspberry, cherry, plum, leather, floral pastille. Classically styled Rioja, oak (American) is present. Medium/full body, long finish."

    Still great, perfect pairing with grilled steaks. Picked up balsamic notes, leather and aged oak on this tasting. Should go for a while - but worth opening now...

    May 28, 2023 - 2/3, vg cork. Decanted then served.
    Deep ruby core, narrow pale ruby rim. Ripe blackcurrant fruit, smoke, vanilla oak. Youthful. Medium/full bodied, blackcurrant, vanilla, some red fruit, spice, soft tannins, vibrant acids, very good length finish. Still very youthful/oaky, needs time to integrate. Next bottle 5 + years.

    April 10, 2023 - Dark fruit, Mediterranean spice, peat moss and dried mushrooms. This wine has the “X” factor that I seek. Great depth and texture. After a needed two hour decant, this wine expressed it self beautifully. There are ten years of great drinking in this wines future. Great juice.
