    February 29, 2020 - These are going in the wrong direction. Best way to describe my experience is that this was "green" tasting - not red or black fruit notes like I prefer. More tart, green, sour... I am usually a big fan of Becklyn - just not this one.

    December 31, 2019 - 90 minute decant. Deep eggplant with a magenta rim. Nose of smoke, red and dark berries and oak. Taste is much more on the smoke and ash side with fruits being more restrained and primarily in the red group of raspberry and pomegranate. Missing a little sweetness and even has somewhat sour acidic notes. Girlfriend took one taste and wouldn't drink anymore. Acidity is high. Medium chalky tannins. Medium plus body. Not nearly as good as my bottle about 18 months ago. Maybe in a weird dormant stage on the fruit. About 89-90.

    December 25, 2019 - 1 hr of air in decanter. Nose is blackberry and cassis, some bell pepper and current on the palate. Compared to the Becklyn Napa Valley, this is more restrained and not as full bodied/fruit forward. Tangy finish. It’s a nice wine, but at this price, not a good QPR and won’t be a re-buy for me.

    September 23, 2019 - Opened Saturday night and decanted for an hour. Consumed over two days. Beautiful wine after an hour decant and continued to improve during the evening. The 5pz 8 had left over seemed to bit rather fruit forward the next day. Enjoyed it more the first night.

    July 14, 2019 - Really didn’t show well this time around. The fruit and acid didn’t jive. It had a ripe dark fruit with bright acid that never really came together. Haven’t had anything taste quite like this before, so not sure what happened.
