    September 26, 2018 - As I remembered it from a year ago. Very funky nose. A nice wine -- blackberry and cedar. Balanced.

    January 29, 2018 - Black cherry, hints of cedar and spice, excellent harmony of flavors. Very nice both with food and alone.

    January 26, 2018 - A bit sour, too much acidity without fruit to balance. Also a bit musty. Maybe it's too young, but I think it might just be mediocre.

    November 27, 2017 - Super-funky on opening. But it mellows quickly. Nice.

    October 14, 2017 - Very nice. Blanced with silky tannins, dark fruit and a nice earthiness.
