    January 18, 2020 - It’s kind of dormant right now. After 4 hours in the decanter, it reached its stride.

    Much more expressive on day 2. A little bit of VA and drying tannins complement some red fruit and baking spice. There is a tiny bit of road tar and some other things that make one think of Nebbiolo, but I’m not sure that I could identify this blind as such. Very nice, and probably still 5 years away from what should be at least a decade long peak.

    November 9, 2018 - So tight. We PNPed because we were already rather inebriated, but that was a bad idea (not one to be repeated). Tart cranberries, raspberries, sour cherry, mustard seed, anise. Wonderful aromatics. This really should not be touched for 10 years.

    May 1, 2018 - decant again in 2-3 years, and then drinking well for > 15 yrs. has the stuffing to go the distance.

    December 17, 2017 - Pop & pour, which is the worst way to serve this wine, but i keep a stash of wine at my parents house, and this was the most appropriate one for dinner tonight. Beautiful structure, and sour cherries and cranberries on the nose and palate, but this wine is still almost impenetrable.

    It improves with decanting and an hour of air, but don’t even think about opening this right now unless you have two hours to let it breathe (eight to twelve hours would be more appropriate). This might be ready in 2022.
