    March 7, 2021 - Decanted 4 hours on day 1. Black licorice and sweet vermouth on the nose, with blue/black fruits and minerality on the palate. Finish went on for what seemed like days. Showed even better on Day 2. In a great place at 11 years old and probably has several more left to go.

    November 23, 2018 - Good structure and good fruit. A bit of spice, but hard to place. Couldn't decide whether it needed more air. A bit of a puzzle.

    April 14, 2017 - Really enjoyed drinking this last night but would wait about 5 years before having another bottle. D. Mitchell decanted this wine, I believe for a couple of hours. At first, the nose had caramel and vanilla notes that were as powerful as the cherry, plum, and blackberry. Thankfully the oak notes subsided after a bit of swirling and the beautiful fruit, violets, and dark chocolate came through. Still quite primary although there was some nice sweet tobacco developing with a ton of upwards potential and thus the recommendation to wait. Fantastic wine. As my wife I like to simple put "it was yummy".

    January 27, 2017 - Earthy, fruity bouquet. Deep, rich and unforgettable mouthfeel. Flavor notes consistent from prior tastings. Loads of cola, chocolate, baking/Asian spice, strawberry bramble and plumb. There are no extracted flavors, no egregious oak treatment, no excessive tannins. You are drinking pure fruit. Mega long finsish.
