    Jul 2017: Tasting. Crazy tannic. Great flavors. Needs 15+ years.

    January 11, 2020 - Opened and slow ox'd for two hours while watching the football games. The nose was fruit and licorice. The palate was berries, plums, licorice and spices. A moderate finish. Very enjoyable.

    January 5, 2020 - A mix of red & black fruit on the nose, with a menthol note as well.

    Not bad on the palate either, although this just followed a glass of the 2010 Rancia, so a little difficult appreciating this wine after that one. But off this first glass, I would say that this wine offers more than the '07, '08 or '09 Rancia, so all in a pretty decent vintage.

    December 31, 2019 - New Years Eve (Rocknroller's (Kevin & Vicki's Place)): Dark red color. Slow ox for 3 hours. Drank a glass over 2 hours. This is a full bodied Rancia, with dark red cherry and black cherry, dried spices and woodsy, anise and gravel.

    November 12, 2019 - Quite enjoyable, with notes of plum, cherry, and hints of tobacco. Medium bodied, with a savory character, good grip and texture on the long finish.
