    May 25, 2019 - Very nice. Taut but nice acid. Not overblown on fruit. Matches tritip well

    March 22, 2019 - Medium co,or. Clear. More garnet than purple. Slightly subdued but pleasant nose. Somewhat austere initially in mouth rounding into a deep, dark, meinerally, herbaceous phase before a relatively short/medium finish.

    December 1, 2017 - Tight, mineralistic,and quite underwhelming on the nose. Good balance and a well made wine.

    April 10, 2017 - Too young, but curious to try, followed for 2 days. This smells like a barrel sample, very primary. There is a distinctive (and slightly off-putting) note of rubber with smoke, minerals, cassis. Very cool climate bouquet, which I like. The palate is quite dry and fairly tart, showing a lean style. Some tannins still, but they are not coarse. Very minerally in style, but too stern right now to love. Avoids the modern end of things quite well, but it needs to flesh out in the cellar to garner an excellent rating. Right now, it's pleasant and acceptable. Hold.

    February 4, 2015 - Very deep color, ample fruit and spicy wood, but the structure is too imposing right now. This might develop well over the next 15 years, although the 12.8% abv seems more present than it should be. If drinking now, this needed a solid 12 hours in the decanter to lose its initial awkward austerity.
