    November 3, 2019 - Cellar must and sharp red fruit on the nose. Needed 30 minutes to begin to open up in the glass; red fruit, grass, olive brine, graphite, fine tannins and moderate acidity. Still feels restrained. While I enjoyed the bottle, I do feel it's not one really I want more of so the remaining eight bottles are being sold to a local wine purveyor.

    October 27, 2019 - This wine is singing. Gorgeous nose--like a cinnamon-licorice barnyard. Energetic and long on the palate. Generous but no excess fat. What a bottle!

    November 21, 2018 - Bottle 2 of 6. Last time I had a bottle was 2 yrs ago.
    Took this one to GA for Thanksgiving, no formal TN.
    Red fruit and barnyard, old leather, tobacco leaf.
    Gritty, chewy tannins with a med+ finish of bright red fruits and soil notes.
    Drink now through 2024+.

    August 22, 2017 - Very tight and tannic first day; more approachable on the second. Red fruit, cranberry most notably. Sour disposition. Some earth and herbs. In spite of my first tasting note for this wine, I think I'm not a fan. Will look to sell my remaining bottles if possible.
