    May 8, 2020 - Notes from Russ: only did the wine for three years because the vines got mature and vigorous and changed the taste of the wine. And it was far. Cooler climate gives meatier taste. Earthy. Lower yield which gives it the amazing flavor.

    January 8, 2019 - Decanted and drank; very little sediment. Notes from April 2017 hold. Agree with others: drink now.

    3 hours later: maybe hold? Has acidity and fruit and has come together well. I have another bottle and will give another 2 years to see.
