    October 10, 2021 - Decanted two hours. Clean, mature garnet. Nose of plum, leather, and pine. Juicy, savory, almost animal on the palate, ripe black fruit, minerals, roasted meat. Good on its own, alchemically stellar with food, absolutely lit up with pumpkin ravioli. I've been a little tepid on previous bottles of this, but excited to have more, this is finally coming into its own.

    September 8, 2021 - More evolved than the bottle I drank last year but still wonderful. Nose of sour cherries, plum, currant, olives, herb, potpourri, and balsamic notes. A beautiful wine that still needs a healthy decant and on night #2, getting more of the savory, syrupy, balsamic notes. Drink now.

    August 17, 2021 - Maybe flawed bottle, but stored correct over the years. Appeared as over the top which I found strange for only 10+ years.

    August 1, 2021 - Wotn
    Tannins blew off quickly
    Great nose
    Gentle fruit some forest floor on the palate
    Years of life left but in a drinking window
