    September 21, 2022 - Solid! In a nice middle-aged spot with enough fruit but also some secondary notes of leather and tobacco. The only issue is that there is still a substantial amount of tannins on the finish, which I fear will outlive the fruit. I will drink my remaining bottles over the next few years.

    September 3, 2022 - Complex with forward notes of berry and oak. Pleasant finish in spite of age.

    September 1, 2022 - Similar to my last note in 2019. Just make sure you aerate for an hour or more. Has become a decent full-bodied drinker, but not spectacular. My last bottle.

    August 5, 2022 - Menthol, mushroom/forest floor, fig, dark berries, mint, and cedar. Light/medium bodied with dark berries and med/plus acidity. Minty, menthol finish with some cigar ash and grippy tannin. Gains sweetness with aeration but still a little hard at the time of this note.

    June 3, 2022 - The immediate taste is a very tart bitterness on the palate, followed by firm tannins. The most prominent note is like the scent you would get from a moldy or musky smell usually occurring from the inside of an old wet wooden boat.
