    July 1, 2020 - This rocked it. Marionberry, blackberry, smoked brisket, hickory wood chips, pepper. Super refined

    May 31, 2020 - Good fruit after 30 minutes with air. So aerate before sipping.

    May 11, 2020 - Really has come into its own. Bright fruit, full mid-palate and lingering finish.
    Dark fruits, strawberries, a bit of plum.

    April 12, 2020 - Flat and uninspired... disappointing.

    January 19, 2020 - Food pairing seems to be the determine factor for me with this wine. Tonight, marching with smoked ribs, it was very well paired. But as I sipped after dinner I found it to be very short on the finish with little fruit to impress.
