    July 11, 2021 - Electric fruit…drawing out gaining a little secondary spice…rudimentary and a little out of balance …which works for pizza wine :). Amazing this has aged easily for 7 years .

    March 9, 2021 - Bright berry nose. Lush, sweet fruit, raspberry, blackberry. Fine tannins, great acidity and balance. Hint of anise on mid-palate. Finishes moderately long with spice and red fruits. Lovely, classic Zinfandel. Not at the level of Mike's SV Zins, but that's a pretty high bar. Drink over next 2 years. Note: I posted this mistakenly as the Carlisle Vineyard. That note has been deleted; ignore it if you have already read it.

    January 24, 2021 - Hard to come up with new superlatives for this QPR champ. Another solid showing. Right in the zone, leans toward purple fruit and soft tannins. I think this was the vintage that transitioned to screw caps, still fresh! In a good spot right now, I'll look enjoy my final bottle from the vintage soon.

    December 20, 2020 - Decanted a half hour. Nice raspberry/brambleberry aromas. Quite a bit of zip on the palate - I think in part because this hadn't fully warmed up, but also surprisingly good acid balance. Great with grilled lamb chops! 3 hours later more rich, plum fruit emerged, some blueberry notes also. My wife said "$20 for this quality? You shoulda bought a case!!" Anyhow - still has room to improve, so 90-91.

    October 29, 2020 - Delaware BeachHouse Weekend (Rehoboth Beach): Great value play. Straightforward cherry and plum flavors are accented by more sophisticated menthol and lavender elements. A little bottle age probably helped this reach a new plateau.
