    July 19, 2019 - Bottle 3 of 4 Robert Foley Sip 'n Snack Day. Full-bloomed purple on the eye. Luvly blend of medium oak, black cherries and raspberries with a subtle touch of almond vanilla. 5+ hours breathing in fat-assed decanter. Again, why the alcohol? Bold, rich, powerful, spicy. Hits on all cylinders. Think FloJo's grace with Serena’s muscularity On my knee asking for, well, whatever I can get. Wow!!! Early onset of unrequited love. Strong, fairly heavy ripe tannins finish. Oh my!!! Simply AWESOME.

    April 20, 2019 - Decanted for 75 minutes. Continued to open for another 15 or so. Fairly big wine. Lots of dark fruit, moderate tannins. Should continue to improve for at least a few more years.

    February 16, 2019 - Wonderful wine right now. A combo of Howell Mountain, Mount Veeder, and Atlas Peak vineyards. Fruit is dark and concentrated with black cherry, blackberry, and cassis. Beautiful mid-palate of black licorice, mocha, dark chocolate, and toasty oak with a richness that just elevates the wine. Still some grippy tannins but well balanced and a great long finish.

    January 13, 2019 - Decanted for an hour. Improved after another half hour. Moderate tannins. Cocoa notes. Big fruit. Tremendous finish. Really excellent. Could see it continuing to improve over next 3-5 years.
