    November 25, 2021 - A lighter tasting wine, but very good. Went well with the turkey dinner

    November 23, 2021 - Decanted of the above moderate sediment and left to breathe briefly.
    Aromas show a great fruit presence still and almost liqueur like with notes of crème de cassis, dark brandied cherry, slightly dehydrated blueberry, and Chambord that bring in the scents of vanilla Chantilly, oak spice, cigar box, pencil shavings, leather and hints of herbs, floral pastilles and the warmth of the abv finalizing.
    The palate is extremely smooth, creamy in texture with the tannins completely integrated. Berry like acidity is still mouthwatering and the abv is warming. Rich flavors of crème de cassis, Chambord, super-ripe blueberry and Luxardo cherry bring in the notes of vanilla bean crème anglaise, candied violets, spice, cedarwood, leather and hints of herbs, earth and cigar tobacco. The finish is smooth letting the sneaky tannins come into focus and the fruit play out on the palate.

    October 21, 2021 - Drinking superbly, will benefit from a short 30-60 minute decant, highly recommend and time to drink up any remaining holdings. Beautiful, elegant, soft, mature, very well integrated with plenty of fruit left but oak and tannins essentially all gone at this point. Dark purple with some peripheral bricking noted. Aromatic nose of dark plum, rose and blueberry with flavors of dark fruit, cassis and earth evolving into earthier forest floor, mushrooms and tobacco. Superb QPR wine, very consistent year to year and hard to believe this is anyone's entry level wine.

    September 9, 2021 - delicious, silky, medium to full bodied dark fruit, coffee and a hint of earth. Drink now.
