    February 26, 2018 - Dinner at Formento's (Chicago, IL): Gotta be the most ready and welcoming Levet I've been able to try. Very classic with meaty, peppery fruit. But the fruit is a bit lightweight and lean. Good and classic.

    February 26, 2018 - Dinner at Formento's with Michael (Chicago, IL): Could it be? My first Levet that doesn't smell like a barn? Nope, there was still a little of that on the back end of the nose, but at least this bottle was far more perfumed and showed more spice and earth qualities than outright funk. The palate isn't too convincing though; good acidity and some fruit, but it feels like it's getting a little tired. Drink up, while there's still some flesh on the bones.

    December 24, 2017 - Smoky, rubber glove nose. A touch of VA, sour cherry, olive, on the palate. Interesting, but a little out of balance.But then a smoky, olive phase that is very good. A little too wild and rustic.

    November 5, 2017 - Drank really nicely. The fruit was more pure and concentrated on this bottle compared to some of the others where the fruit felt stripped down. I'm not anticipating this to get much better, but this bottle was in a great spot.

    May 2, 2017 - A very lean and edgy syrah. Has some rustic notes (meat, earth) and some floral elements.
