    April 27, 2019 - Jesper going-away party (Peter's): a little natty at first - lambic cherry, peanut butter. But it blows off and there’s some lovely cherry with wet leaves. A little development. Feels like slight VA. Slight savory tamari. Dried leaves and dried flowers.

    Medium bodied. Med plus acid. Soft low tannins. Slight balsamic notes. Complex. Slight pepper. Long. Beautiful.

    Slightly singed. Evolving. Slight Brett.

    March 14, 2019 - Definitely cloudy, hazy red. This is definitely slightly flawed, but not undrinkably so. The nose showed cherries with iron ore...a musky perfume, but a weird unclean air pervades.. On the palate, excellent acidity, and good cherry on a surprisingly dense but strange.

    January 21, 2018 - Pours a cloudy, hazy red. Somewhat edgy, like va at first, but it quickly dissipates. Brigh, razor edge red fruit, cranberry, sour cherry, and earth tones. With air, the nose picks up tertiary scents of fall and wet leaves. Softens and rounds off even more with air and become quite lovely. No regrets here. Drinking great.

    August 1, 2016 - Definitely ready to go. Slightly volatile and evolved, with a rusty note, salmiak liquorice, and preserved fruit (like last year's cordial). Juicy and harmonious on the palate with a nice balance of the salty and the sweet with decent acidity, drinking really well now. Somewhat 'wilder' than expected, fairly similar to Lilian Bauchet's VdF Fleuries. Wouldn't keep much longer.

    March 7, 2016 - Light ruby color in the glass, scents of sour cherry, mushrooms, earth, and wash-rind cheese. Notes of strawberry, clove, and faint hints of cinnamon linger lightly on the palate. This is a nice wine, but not as awe-inspiring as it was in it's youth. Possibly a victim of the vintage...or I just opened it 20 years too soon. Either way, I'm happy with what's in the glass and will gladly buy again. Excellent-Outstanding
