    October 21, 2019 - Not blind
    Red berries, reluctant but with lot of power. A bit too one dimensional in this stage but refreshing acidity- 92-93

    September 27, 2019 - No formal notes, PnP at restaurant. Loved the complexity, didn’t find oak overpowering. Took home 1/3 of the bottle and it was even better the next day. Great bottle.

    September 3, 2019 - Opened for our 12th wedding anniversary. Initial aromas were fruit, and birthday cake. Left bottle for 30 min before pouring. found it to be a little too soft initially, but now I'm 3 hrs in, and the soft supple tannins are awesome, velvety and soft, but hang in there for a good 30 seconds. I went from a 90 point score initially to a 93 the way it's drinking now. Wish I had more of this, is just awesome.

    August 24, 2019 - Dinner @ Shao Frankel + Blind Tasting: 2nd try this year: Nose of red fruits, lavender, rose and vanilla. Tasted cassis, flowers, violets, spices on the palate. Nice long eucalyptus finish. Slight acidity, just enough to bring out the floral scent and tertiaries. Enjoyed this thoroughly again. Open now

    July 21, 2019 - Nose: The nose is savory and perfumed, filled with strawberries, sour red cherries, blackberries, violets, dill, vanilla, red currants, pipe tobacco, and asian spices. There is excellent depth and complexity here with a sour quality to the fruit that is quite attractive.

    Taste: Medium bodied with medium+ tannins and medium+ acidity. The acidity is crisp and refreshing, but with a youthful quality to it while the tannins are silky. The feel is poised and refined with excellent depth and sour red cherries, violets, strawberries, blackberries, asian spices, vanilla, and some pipe tobacco.

    Overall: This is absolutely gorgeous right now, though it was given over 6 hours of air. This is clearly young, but it is also extremely good, balanced, and aromatic which shows that it can get even better from where it is right now.
