    January 15, 2022 - Last bottle, corked.

    December 25, 2021 - Deep ruby color with slow legs. Nice jammy nose with oak and cassis. Blackberry, plum and vanilla on the palate. Long leathery finish. Excellent QPR.

    September 19, 2021 - Second half of bottle on Day 2 made a huge change. First day was very tight, stemmy, little fruit leading me to think it was over the peak.
    Second day: raspberry, cola, cinnamon, well integrated tannins. Incredible difference.

    September 19, 2021 - In a good spot but agree with last note - drink up

    July 6, 2021 - Always one of my favorite offerings from Mike, but this vintage should be consumed in the near-term (next year or so) as the fruit seems to be fading just a bit and the alcohol is poking through on the finish. Pop/pour/enjoy soon!
