    June 16, 2018 - Crusty floral nose with dark fruit and elements of pipe tobacco and allspice. Dense dry aromatic fruit on the palate, penetrating with underlying tannins and lovely acid bracing at the back. Beautifully balanced. 50 + 17 + 18 + 8 = 93.

    October 3, 2017 - Dark berry, pepper, and a hint of smoke on the nose and palate with tasty whole cluster notes on the moderate finish. Drinking well!

    September 23, 2017 - Not much has changed since the last bottle in April. Simple, savory, with medium fruit underneath. Good with food. Drink now or over next 3-4 years.
