    January 20, 2019 - Decanted and tasted, nice Napa fruit but not over the top, balanced, smooth medium finish.

    July 27, 2018 - Decanted for an one to three hours...deep opaque purple with a lighter more translucent garnet rim. Blackberry compote hits you up front on the nose with hints of cassis, cedar and baking spice. On the palate I'd say it is just barely a full bodied wine. Ample fruit and quite round with no sharp edges. Not a lot of hidden character other than a rather interesting spicy finish. Probably can do just as well with a wine at half it's price.
