    January 8, 2021 - Quite good, though obviously.not as good as the Estate one. Drinking it just a tad bit iver aged so the fruits are weaker but the acidicity and tannins more pronounced. Still lovely.

    November 2, 2019 - Djupröd. Viol, tobak, tallskog. Rak mörk frukt, mjukt långt slut. Redo att drickas.
    The wine looks crimson colored. The legs are medium. There is light sediment in the bottle.

    April 22, 2019 - True to Pacific Northwest versions of the variety, a more angular and aggressive effort that lines up squarely with Cab. Bitter/tart fruit, some char, a little veggie, herbal notes...quite tannic and lengthy. Interesting and fairly complex, if slightly disjointed. But not unlikeable to my taste. Best with several hours of decanting.

    September 1, 2018 - tart cherry and ripe plum with a luscious mouthfeel while still being dry. notes of cocoa and combined with medium grained tannins. Nice

    February 5, 2018 - Upon opening, the wine was very watery, with very little flavor. After being open for a day, there was nice cherry flavor on the midpalate, with a touch of blackberry displaying also. Not much acid or tannin. So the wine is easy drinking, but not terribly complex.

    A second day open introduced some oak, a little spice, and a touch of tartiness at the tip of my tongue. So this ended up being solid, respectable merlot. Just not amazing. Easy drinking for those who don’t like a lot of tannin in their wine.
