    December 26, 2020 - Double decanted 4 hours prior to dinner. This is an outstanding port. Harmonious. Layered and long. Damn near perfect.

    November 26, 2020 - Lovely ruby color. This was a lesson in deferring final judgment of a port until tasting it for more than one day. I first drank this wine after dinner on Thanksgiving with the pumpkin pie and it was rather closed and somewhat bitter with a minimum of fruit. The day after it was quite compelling with a bouquet and flavor of candied apple, cherry, toffee, stale pepper, and dust. A bit hot to the taste with good definition, and depth, and a moderate finish. All together a very nice end to a wonderful turkey dinner, which my wife and I enjoyed by ourselves the the dark winter of covid.

    November 7, 2020 - Decanted from a half bottle and enjoyed immediately as dessert. Complex nose with camphor, cinnamon, baking spices, cordial, burnt apple. On the palate we have smooth fully integrated spices, pruney raisins, alcohol. Great complexity, Peter loved this.

    March 29, 2020 - This needs a full 15 hrs of air to show all it has to offer.
    Day 1: Mushroom, macerated wood, Alcohol, raisin, sweet sherry notes, Palate has Sweet edge, hints of oxidation (although cork was clean and tight), dry brown sugar, rounded silky mouth feel, Under pinning acidity keeps it vibrant. Showing more sherry then port,
    Day 2: Subdued nose still, same as prior day but, black liquorish, black pepper, red fruits joined the party. Palate richer and offering more depth of fruit, red/black bush berries steeped in alcohol, Hot, There is an interesting red apple skin finish that lingers for quite some time. For my palate this was more enjoyable in year 20 of its evolution. Purchased upon release and stored accordingly in the bowels of my cellar. Enjoyed on its own as I wait for COVID19 to come knocking on my door. Drink up if you have any. I suggest pulling the cork 24hrs prior to service and just let it audouze someplace cool… Na zdrowie

    March 6, 2020 - Half bottle, decanted for Katie's birthday party. Amazing and classy with key lime pie for dessert.
