    February 9, 2019 - Checked in again on this one, mainly due to a fellow wino opening his. This wine has done a lot of growing in over 2 years but was told that this one was drinking much better on Day 2. Drink now with a LOOONG decant or better yet, hold for another 2-3 years.

    March 10, 2018 - Triple aerated- a soirée on bottle poured through a vinturri down the side of a show decanter. No need to wait to drink. ( previous bottles needed about an hour, which was tough to make it to without drinking it all. So much more open with layers of flavor than previous tastings. Great color and nose, with a nice balance of fruit and tannins. Blueberries and leather with a hint of tobacco.

    August 27, 2017 - Great bottle. Still young and tight but extraodinary fruit.
    I had to areate it for 5 minutes on the Vino Volve areator and then let it sit for a couple hours. Really brought it to life.

    May 12, 2017 - After about an hour and a half of being open, this was so incredibly supple. Dark purple and almost black in the glass. Blackberries and raspberries on the nose...faint hint of pepper. Absolutely perfectly balanced on the palate...blackberry pie, blackberry preserves, plum, red and black licorice on the palate. This is so delicious now, but in 3-4 years, this will be absolutely divine. Up there with Red Cap in best wines of 2011.

    February 26, 2017 - Dry finish, a bit austere and missing some fruit. Fine but not great. Maybe it will open up in a few hours. Patience helped. Wine opened up after 2+ hours so upgrading from 89 to 91 points. Also was more enjoyable with food.
