    March 28, 2020 - Deep purple color. Muted nose. Medium body. Very primary, yet has a juiciness to it that balances the tannins and acidity. Dark fruit predominates. Revisit in 5 years.

    February 21, 2020 - Decanted for two (2) hours. Black fruit, cigar box, leather and forest floor. Full bodied with impressive texture and depth; rich flavors of aforementioned fruit are partnered with required acidity. Sits nimbly on the palate leading to long evenly distributed finish. A young wine that showed progressively better through the evening. Drank remarkably well now but will no doubt demonstrate improvement with continued ageing.

    December 25, 2019 - Very tart and acidic, lighter body than I anticipated. Decanted 1 1/2 hours, but was still better at the end of the meal than beginning. This was a crowd pleaser, but I was expecting more. Will try again in a couple years. Paired with beef wellington.

    November 10, 2019 - Smooth, balanced, dark garnet purple. Black fruit dominates. Tannins are good, not harsh. This is a substantial wine. Medium to full bodied. Opens gradually with time and a subtle tobacco aroma emerges. This is a young wine and I suspect it will have a long life. Right now I like this better than the 2016.
