    July 10, 2022 - Had my last bottle of this 5 years ago and gave it a 94. Well not this time. Something has made the taste a lot different. Seems a little "old." Nothing fruity about it like 5 years ago. Sediment present now. I will pass the lower rating off to this single bottle. I am bummed.

    June 18, 2022 - Having just a glass of a newly opened bottle at the Heritage tasting room. Outdoor with a breeze so hard to nose. Medium to full body, still has some significant tannins. Decent finish. Begs for a steak. Probably has a few years to peak and will probably last another 7-10 years.

    May 12, 2022 - My first trip to Walla Walla; 5/12/2022-5/14/2022 (Walla Walla, Washington): 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 15% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Franc. Saturated, perfumed, pleasing, smooth, tart berry, black cherry with nice acidity.

    October 31, 2020 - Dark fruit, cassis, candied cherry, misc red fruits, herbal/licorice notes, cocoa, coffee. Palate had plum, cherry, coffee, light minerality, graphite, dusty tannins.

    This seemed to be a bit more earthy/mineral driven than some commenters were probably expecting? I wouldn't call it past peak necessarily. I think there is room for more evolution, but it has a lighter intensity body for sure.
