    June 5, 2019 - Lighter than expected, with a bit of spice. Probably too young. Excellent notes of spice, mint. June 2019.

    February 27, 2019 - Cool, minty, closed, elegant, dry - and way, way to young. 93++

    February 10, 2019 - 1hour decant thru an aerator
    before tasting.
    Initially tight and thin. It began opening somewhat at hour two.
    Medium bodied with some red and dark berries, a little more sweetness than I prefer. A lot of oaky tannin which is understandable given it’s youth. There’s some spice and mint on the finish. Decent balance and structure.
    It’s hard for me to know how good this will ultimately be...it’s not there yet. 93 today

    December 16, 2018 - Decanted for an hour. Blueberry, rosemary, blackberry, flower shop, dried rose petal, used coffee grounds, dried earth and sweet basil. Lavish, almost chewy tannins and a marvelously long finish with dark berry resonance. Defined layers, and a deep palate that slowly reveals its inner self. This will age for at least two decades. Drink 2021 -.

    November 10, 2018 - Surely the winery can do better with this fruit and this legacy. Not a bad wine, but hardly inspiring. Floral blue fruit and some peppered spice. Comes off as overly polished, without a sense of place. Maybe too harsh, but expectations are deservedly high with this bottling.
