    October 13, 2022 - Delicious. Dark cherries and flowers on the open, with notes of earth, some wood, and herbs on the back end. Built in a more elegant style that lets the fruit shine. 12.3% ABV.

    September 11, 2022 - Late Birthday BYO: Blind. Behagelig, avdempet, ikke noen uttralt struktur, litt uklar. Gaske stum egentlig, i begynnelsen. Svak røyk, saftig, blåbær.

    July 10, 2022 - Kutch Verticals--Trout Gulch, McDougall and Falstaff: Vertical (non-blind) of McDougall, 2010 -2021. We did not taste the 2011 (no one owned it) nor 2014 and 2018 (stupid COVID forced the owners to have to miss the tasting) and the 2021 was a tank sample that Jamie pulled for us and shipped down for the tasting (being bottled next week so it's the final composition). Last had two years ago and I would say the wine is still moving along the same flavor lines, perhaps now showing some of the tones of age since that time. Dark plum, snappy berry with a tangy edge. There is some creamy red berry still here but the cedar and age is beginning to overtake it. Spicy cinnamon and some influence of stems in the finish, both that help create length.

    June 24, 2022 - Medium to light, starting to brick at the rim. Some evolution on the nose, clove spice, soft smoke, well balanced, just about ripe, cherry fruit. Good fresh finish. Im enjoying this a lot, it could develop and improve more. 12.3%

    March 4, 2022 - Nice mix and balance of red fruit, hoisin, and acidity.
