    October 6, 2019 - displayed vibrant fresh dark fruits and cherry, and worn dusty saddle leather. Great length of finish.

    September 29, 2019 - Slightly corked. My sample size is unlikely to be representative but I get much more corked Tuscan reds than Bordeaux or anywhere else really

    August 31, 2019 - Had during a meal with friends so the notes are more from memory and perception than anything

    The thing that stood out was the complete balance of the wine. Nothing jumped out at you but i mean that in the most positive way. The tannins were smooth and refined. The dark fruit was clear and distinctive but so were the secondary flavors of earth, clove, cinnamon and an ever so slight bit of menthol.
    The mouthfeel was rich and smooth. The finish went on for quite a while. The word that keeps crossing my mind is pretty. It was so easy to drink that the bottle was gone before we realized it.
    I would have liked to have tasted this after it had been open for a while because I think it probably would have evolved given more time open. Will wait another couple of years before the next bottle.

    August 31, 2019 - Lots of fruit, dark cherry and raspberry, and spice. Herbal, touch of mint, still some soft tannin. Long finish. Loved it, just as well as 1st of 24!
