    May 9, 2019 - This is drinking great right now, and I just have to say that I absolutely nailed the pairing tonight, and would highly recommend using this recipe. I generally do pretty well with that, but sometimes you get that perfect situation where the meal and wine are both elevated and it's just perfection. Anyway, it's Clean Eating's "pappardelle with spiced meat sauce," which has dried currants, cumin, cinnamon, feta, and mint in the meat sauce for an unusual but delicious take on the pasta with meat sauce game. Here's a link to the recipe: https://www.cleaneatingmag.com/recipes/pappardelle-with-spiced-meat-sauce

    Anyway, so the wine... it's a medium (+) garnet with bricking edges, hinting towards tawny TBH. Aromas of dark and dark red fruits, clove, cinnamon, dry spice drawer, licorice, a bit of floral, and cedar. Beautiful nose. Medium body, acid, and finish, with flavors of dark fruits (currant), dark red fruits (plum, black cherry), orange peel, black tea, lemon, and a touch of spice and mineral. Great showing tonight.

    January 12, 2019 - Popped and poured. Drinking very well right away, only improved with air, consistent with previous taster notes.

    November 9, 2018 - This is in a good place currently and seems to have many more years of enjoyment ahead. Clear, dark ruby color, no decernible bricking. Displays lots of complexity with a nice balance of medium plus intensity, secondary and tertiary aromas and flavors: sour, dried cherry; dehydrated spicy raspberry; chopped tobacco; taunt shoe leather; bitter chocolate; dried mixed herbs: smoked meat; and crusty, cedar infused soil. Tannin and acidity are both medium plus and support a very long finish. Perfect with Italian sausage and pasta in garlic sauce.

    May 5, 2018 - Very dark red colors with orange rim. Mature red and blue fruit, ripe dark cherry dominating; tobaco, dark chocolate, herbal notes, beautiful long finish; still tannic, probably improves within the next years.
