    June 14, 2019 - Medium red brick. Dry, moderate tannins, cherry, tea, leather and grilled herbs. Medium tartness. Good with pizza.

    May 31, 2019 - I like this way more than the last bottle. Nice cherry, damp earth, classic Sangio bite. The oak on this is fully integrated. Has a floral note as well. Long finish.

    February 4, 2019 - Cherry fruit balanced by earth, sandalwood, and herb flavors on a silky frame. Ready to go and easy to drink. Went well with pizza and pasta.

    December 30, 2018 - Ok. Not great. The oak here detracts a bit. Some drying somewhat bitter tannins on the finish. Hopefully the oak integrates more with time. Definitely needs a decant.

    October 13, 2018 - Complex, herbal, floral, but not an outgoing nose (although it did come out after a while with floral and cherry notes). Would have rated this higher except had a rather overdone woody flavor.
