    July 12, 2019 - First taste on open was a touch sweet. My wife found a lot of cherry. I had a bit of dry tannin behind it. Changed over 39-45 minutes with sweetness coming and going, but still a medium dry fruit taste and the slightly over-sweetness stayed for me. No jam, some earth, and maybe a bit of honey came through. Second of 2 bottles, stored since acquired at winery.

    March 12, 2019 - Deep garnet, aromas of black berries, spice and vanilla. Concentrated black berry flavor, with moderate dusty tannins and moderately strong anise notes in the finish.

    February 23, 2019 - Served with grilled ribeye steak, roast potatoes, salad.
    Decanted about 25 minutes prior to serving.
    Look: Ruby with a tinge of brick at the rim, but still lively.
    Nose: plum, raisin, darker fruit.
    Taste: difficult! Certainly not a fruit-forward wine - darker and deeper than that. Initial impression was a dry wine, moderate acid, soft tannins. Time passed, evolved into flavors of dark bitter chocolate, earth, tobacco, still off-kilter. More time passed and the wine settled down, smoothed out. Conclusion: this wine still MUST HAVE AIR!

    January 18, 2019 - OMG delicious. You *must* decant this and let it breathe. My son actually asked it was vinegar straight from the bottle. He was literally shocked it was the same wine. End of story, totally delicious.
