    November 22, 2018 - No frame of reference - sole bottle. Started opening up after about an hour. Touch of fresh manure, sweet black raspberry, herbs, and a medicinal note on the nose. Bitter cherry cough syrup palate evolving to sweet blackberry with a bit of cocoa powder and rich, chalky, mouth filling tannin. Full bodied, dark, and velvety. Drank unpaired, but all I can think of is pairing with black olive tapenade.

    November 12, 2018 - Another great bottle from my favorite winery. Had my first bottle of the 2012 Two Acres a year and half back and this has barely changed--maybe a little softer on the finish and I can't find as much herb. If I had more I wouldn't be afraid to hold for years but not sure it will get any better than it is now

    November 2, 2018 - Served with pork chops, squash, salad.
    Cork: first impression is a bit jammy, touch of tobacco.
    Look: deep ruby, perhaps garnet, inviting.
    Smell: nice nose, fruit forward, aromatic, a bit indistinct.
    Taste: a spicy bite, some tannin & acid, tobacco and smoke still in play.
    Enjoyable.

    June 10, 2017 - A well made wine. Mourvedre, Petite Sirah and five other old vine (circa 1910) grapes blend perfectly--but no Zin or Cab. Deep black fruit with some herb that holds up well over two days--don't think it needs to be decanted. Have one more bottle and don't know how long I will be able to keep it. Will buy more of this in the next allotment.

    April 26, 2017 - No need to decant my bottle. Dark, meaty, aromatic and balanced. Ideal red with ribeye. Love the minty red fruits.
