    October 8, 2019 - Decanted for two hours then consumed over two nights. A week ago I was disappointed with this wine, but this bottle was so much better offering dusty and soft ripe fruit wrapped around an impressive acid core. Lovely both nights. I guess the previous bottle was a lazy runt of the litter.

    October 2, 2019 - Decanted for 4 hours, returned to the bottle, then consumed over 2 nights. This wine seemed to be struggling to be worthy of its price point over both nights. Anxious, unsettled. Maybe I caught it at a bad time, but it just never delivered.

    September 1, 2019 - Too soon!!!
    (Update) 24 hours later... vacuum sealed about 25% of the bottle overnight and MUCH better. The extra long decant helped!

    August 6, 2019 - Opened in Aug 2019. Popped and poured. Nice nose with some aging - red berry still there but leather and cacao showing. Taste of sweeter bing cherry, cedar and chocolate.
