    November 4, 2019 - Day 2: A bit hot with spice, floral, cherry cough syrup and dark chocolate. I have been underwhelmed with this wine back in the spring. This wine is going no where but down. 85 points
    Day 3: Nice transformation. Most would have dumped the bottle but not 3 Day Wine Review! Pencil lead, spice, floral, dark chocolate and sour cherries. While not a Rockstar this is drinkable. Medium finish. 88 points
    Recommendation: Really not worth the tariff. I paid $30 plus shipping for this and would not recommend this wine. Really not impressed with the wines of Sleight of Hand with some age.

    May 30, 2019 - Day 1: A bit flat. Spice, blueberries and coffee. Not the most complex wine and short to medium finish. On the pop and pour not impressive. Will see later how this evolves. 87 points
    Day 2: More personality on day 2. Coffee, minerals, spice, roasted meats and dark fruits. Picks up some baking chocolate on the finish. Medium plus with a buttery note. Better. 89 points

    December 30, 2018 - Slow oxed but still closed 2 hours later. Will watch it interact with air in the glass rather than average mechanically. Very dark color with a thin red rim. Moderate nose dominated by the Cab Franc. Medium mouth feel. Slightly grippy tannins. Long, somewhat monolithic finish dominated by the Cab Franc. Still pretty young. Lots of fruit. Bitterness is a challenge to enjoyment. Stem and seed tannin? Herbal.
