    January 7, 2022 - Rockin and Rollin right now. Great right out of the gate. The nose in particular is so good. Likely more upside to come. Love it!

    January 2, 2022 - 1 hour decant after PNP at Avra
    Tart blackberry and licorice. This drinks young, sharp and somewhat tannic with a little tobacco from the oak on the finish . This has good structure but needs five years, just not enjoyable now, so I’ll reserve a numerical rating

    December 25, 2021 - Surprisingly ready to drink. Decanted for one hour and drank with rib roast. Balanced and ready.
