    August 16, 2021 - PNP- not an overly interesting wine but drinking extremely well right now. Soft resolved tannins and the some tertiary aromas coming through nicely. nice mouth feel.

    April 22, 2021 - PNP-little muted behind high heat. Two nights spent to finish the bottle and not much changed with ox. Bottle stored at cellar temp. Dark fruits and bitter chocolate. Very muted and mostly mid-palate density and short finish.

    January 15, 2021 - Wonderful expression of Howell Mountain, drinking very well now and likely for for another 5-10 years. Paired very well with slow cooked boneless beef short ribs. Wine was a deep red, flavors of chocolate, rose, cinnamon, tobacco. Tannins not pronounced decanted 45 mins before serving.

    September 21, 2020 - Drink now. Well balanced with nice structure. Fruit isn’t as present as it was 3-years ago, but still has plenty of life. Drank half on Friday, vacuum corked and drank the rest on Sunday. Could have left it corked for a few more days.

    Taste texture finish balance: jammy, plum, fruit forward, full body, juicy, quick finish

    Overall: 4.5/5. Needed some air. Fruity with an easy finish.
