    December 18, 2022 - On open, nose of burnt rubber and waxy fruit. Blew off in 20 min in a decanter. What resulted was beautiful and elegant, red fruited—raspberry and bright red cherry, hint of green herbs. Oak integrated, some bricking on the edges, plenty of acid to go for a while, almost to the point that the acid was dominant—up to the line, but not over. Not as many secondary notes as I would have thought at 10 yrs, though with a longer decant, who knows.

    October 1, 2022 - 1 hour decant. Nose of vanilla, tapioca, and waxy oak. Palate delivers black cherry, blueberry, and coffee crema with mint and peppery notes. Acidity leads the finish into chunky tannins, dried raspberry, and plum fruit followed by notes of Rollo candy and sweet oak.

    January 19, 2022 - Definitely beyond it's prime. We tasting this when it was originally released at the vineyard and age has only taken away from this wine.
