    November 16, 2016 - A fruity, easy drinking, lighter bodied red that pairs very well with a variety of foods. Fun to drink, doesn't taste or feel mass produced. Slightly acidity structure supports a great finish. Consistent with my experience last year.

    November 30, 2015 - Dark and savory cherry fruit, with bright acid and a bit of grip. Good with bolognese.

    November 23, 2015 - Dark black shading to purple, very thin nose, initially jammy, but fading in the decanter. Mineral and perfume in the mouth, slow legs, finish is clean, not overly long. Tannins are not heavy, but definitely there. Drinking well, very satisfying. Second day, still very nice - went well on first night with fish, and a nice companion to a Caesar salad on the second. Fair amount of sediment in the bottle for a young wine, so be prepared on opening. I decanted for 4 hours, but didn't taste on opening to see where it would be for pop and pour, maybe on the next one.
