    May 29, 2019 - PnP. Deep red w purple tones. Red and black berries on the nose with some spiciness and a touch of heat as well. Lovely depth of flavor on the palate with deep berry flavors and a long finish with some tannins which are well integrated but still there. Intense wine but well balanced. A bit clenched on the finish so could definitely go and perhaps improve for another 3-5 years.

    January 3, 2019 - PNP. cork perfect. color dark ruby. nose has dark fruit and dominated by alcohol. swishing shows some acid and tannin structure, and the tannin is partly oak driven. finish is balanced and has some alcohol peeking out. sipping shows dense fruit and some rhubarb that covers the alcohol and structure. this is a very dense wine and has good balance. would stick to fatty foods to balance the alcohol otherwise this is very polished.

    December 22, 2018 - This seems to be over the hill already. Very dark and broody, almost not pinot like. Not unpleasant, but not what I expected.

    September 16, 2018 - Ripe plum, black cherry and cough syrup with dry forest flour, lit sweet cigar, garden soil and licorice on the nose. The mouth explodes with tart cherry and mixed dark berry with strong tea, pipe tobacco, cracked black pepper and biscuit dough.

    Bigger then I like, riper then I like, but way, way more to like.
