    December 10, 2022 - A funky coffee note hung over this for a while. I initially thought it was corked, but it wasn’t. It was just fairly tertiary. The meaty character went well with the meal, and it worked out, but I was disappointed.

    November 2, 2022 - Charleston Offlineorama VII; 11/2/2022-11/6/2022 (Various locations): still lots of mix of red and black fruit. Decent acidity. A little sweet. Lots of floral. In a perfect spot right now.

    November 2, 2022 - Charleston VII; 11/2/2022-11/6/2022 (Charleston, SC (various locations)): Really super. Amazing how much fruit is still there. All black and cassis and showing very well. With a nice lavender background. One of my favorite styles of wine and seemed to be in a perfect drinking window although not going anywhere anytime soon.
