    October 1, 2019 - Gave this 2 hours of air, 4 probably would have been better. Lovely lifted aromas of cassis, blueberry, raspberry, red cherry, flowers, earth, cedar, and chocolate. Tart cherry, black cherry, cassis, blackberry, flowers, cedar, raspberry, earth, and minerals on the palate. Terrific acidity, integrated tannins, long finish. So delicious. Layered, light, but full of flavor. What was left the second day was even better.

    June 22, 2019 - A wonderful cab. Best wine of the night.

    The wine looks purple colored. The legs are slow. There is light sediment in the bottle. It smells like blackberry, blueberry, black currant (cassis) and mineral. It tastes like blueberry, blackberry and black currant (cassis). The body is full. The wine has silky texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has low acidity.

    May 10, 2019 - Wait on it would be my advice. If drinking now, give it plenty of air. First glass was burly, a bit disjointed. With time this started to open up... dark fruit, some savory elements, tannins chilled out.
