    October 3, 2021 - Modest black fruit bouquet. Medium-bodied, the fruit is beginning to dry out, but still enough there to make the wine enjoyable. Obviously soft and drinkable now, it has a rather narrow, shortish aftertaste.

    August 18, 2021 - Good, dark tasting bdx., better after opened for some time, but nothing special; was better in its youth.

    July 26, 2021 - Structurally fine, lighter style than my preference.
    Mellow nose of dark fruits, very pleasant.
    On the palette this does deliver black fruit - blackberry, plum, and a hint of strawberry.
    Finish a little short but tasty.

    July 12, 2021 - Opened as a second bottle, P & P: thinner following a well-decanted lush red Rhône blend, and less flavorful, but not fair to compare the two. Certainly far less tannin than my previous bottle. To be continued.
    after VV & refrigeration, then down to room temp, this did not show well. Dead-tasting, and, at best, meh.
