    July 18, 2022 - Still drinking well. Benefited from a couple of days of being open - helps to moderate the acidity level, which was high.

    January 2, 2022 - Very enjoyable wine. My first sip, I drew air across the wine and my tongue ... resulted in a flavor explosion. Very intense jammy berry flavors. Loved it!

    The nose has raspberry, blackberry, and a hint of cherry.

    Very deep burgundy/ruby color. Slow legs.

    I'm not so sure about the "2021" drinking window -- it is still a fabulous wine. I'll put this at 2023+. I have a few more bottles so I'll be able to report back later this year.

    December 24, 2021 - For all the hype, I had higher expectations of this wine. Ruby color. Full bodied. Raspberries, cherries and oak. Not particularly balanced with a bit of an angular finish. Let this decant for about an hour and opens up.
