    September 28, 2019 - This wine has turned into a gem! The depth of the wine and the layers of goodness touches the palate with grace and excitement. Red and blue fruit are in the background, but are still apart of the show. The acidity has kept this wine stable. What a pleasant surprise! Great juice!

    June 18, 2019 - Bright garnet colored, medium bodied, ripe cherry fruits with brambly blackberry and black raspberry notes accented by cinnamon and brown spices, hints of pepper vanilla and bacon fat with a moderate tannin, tangy finish.

    May 24, 2019 - Quoting NEAT WATER BACK below: Peak drinking window. Sleek, racy, elegant, traditional Zin. Not overly extracted, not syrup, really in a nice spot.
