    October 22, 2021 - Enjoyable bottle. 2-3 hours of decant is a must. Dark berries on the nose, gains some cigar box and hints of chocolate as it gets air. No hurry, as it still has life. But it’s probably at its apex now.

    August 29, 2021 - My last magnum. Thoroughly enjoyed by all at a dinner party. nice full bodied, well rounded with pleasing, lingering taste. I think it has several years on its peak, at least for the magnums.

    June 2, 2021 - Sampled immediately after opening. Burst of sweet black cherry that stayed on through the middle resolving into something darker, perhaps tar or game, represents depth and does not detract, but the fruit returned on the medium long finish. A touch of amber on the rim but the wine remains nearly black/ inky. All in all it is ready now or sooner rather than later. Very good.

    March 21, 2021 - Deep garnet.
    Black cherries, liquorice, black pepper, cedar aromas.
    Similar palate.
    Medium+ tannins, high acidity.
    Quite well balanced, medium finish.
    Good wine. Probably will continue to drink well for 2-3 years.
