    August 7, 2021 - This is still a deep purple wine in color with nice fruit on the nose. However, after it had a chance to open up, the primary flavors dissipated and were overpowered by a prune like taste and smell. Still a big wine, but depending on ones preference drinking now versus later will probably yield different results.

    May 27, 2020 - Medium purple fading to magenta at the rim. Aromas of dark fruit and spice. The wine is medium to full bodied and dry. The palate features notes of vanilla, tobacco, black pepper, blackberry, black plum, licorice, dark cherries, and chocolate. Smooth and delicious. The alcohol is high, but not overpowering. Tannins medium, acidity medium.

    May 17, 2020 - May 17 2020: Initially quite acidic. Poured through an aerator and drank over two hours. Figs, vanilla, spices, peppery notes came out. Slightly sweetish then and actually quite enjoyable. May actually still improve over the next two, three years. December 22, 2020: drank the last bottle. Pleasant dinner wine, very enjoyable! Almost a 92 now.

    December 11, 2019 - Good acid and nice full fruit. Drank well and went down easy. The finish was fruit with a touch of medium-dry tannin that was slightly sweet. This wine has at least 4-5 more years of prime life

    October 28, 2019 - Deep purple, fruit forward, but we’ll balanced; nice nose; very surprising.
