    April 10, 2020 - Day 1 only had a glass and seemed like pretty standard CS with currant, dark choc, a little forest spice and round but firm tannins. Day 2 was a surprise, slow swirled by the fire pit and it opened up to a silky lingerie feel of sweet berries and cassis syrup, a strong kiss of vanilla, along with a hint of med herbs and minty chocolate. The cool temp put this at the perfect place with med+ finish, over-delivering in a big way. Saved a glass for Day 3 and had lost some of its finesse, but a solid 90 for Day 2 performance.

    January 30, 2019 - This is drinking much better now than earlier reviews indicate. Pleasant perfumed nose. Dark purple ruby saturated color. Rich sweet berry and cassis fruit with no jamminess. Medium/full bodied. Nice balance of acidity and tannins give structure to the flavorful fruit. Best after an hour or so of airing. Delicious now, I doubt this will get better but it should hold for 2-3 years at least. One of the best wines at this (modest) price point I can remember.

    August 5, 2018 - After aerating and decanting, then waiting almost an hour, this wine finally showed some of its potential. Didn’t taste like much at first, but after plenty of time opening up, was much better. Full of red fruit.

    September 9, 2017 - 9/9/2017 SPC Class Wk2: Deep ruby color. Moderate aroma intensity: red cherry, blackberry, eucalyptus. Dry, medium-bodied with lively acidity and soft tannins. Flavors of blackberry, and smoke/tar. Well-balanced and really paired well with braised beef & mushrooms.
