    September 29, 2020 - Perfect age to drink, Delicious ripe and smooth.

    Really opened up after twenty minutes in my glass.

    June 13, 2020 - Need to decant for at least 3 hours. First glass was highly tannic and tight. After an hour, the black fruit aromas and flavors came through nicely with a bit of cigar box and earthiness. Give this one more time in the bottle.

    May 18, 2018 - This wine has changed A LOT since my initial bottle about 2.5 years ago, and not for the better. What you have right now is a very, very tart cherry taste that follows its way through the pallet with bitterness and ends astringent. This fruit is not at all recognizable as being from a high end vineyard like GIII, as it is lacking purity, complexity, layering, delineation and flavor. Although no expert on such things, I don't get any sense this will age well. While I generally think of GIII wines as better consumed earlier than later, I haven't ever had one fall quite so far so fast. Give me a Mike Smith NV from Quivet, Myriad or Becklyn over this any day of the week.
