    April 8, 2020 - Drinking wonderful now.

    March 28, 2020 - This is drinking really well right now. Not decanted. Gentle aromas of red fruit and a kick of spice. On the palate, however, this wine bursts with power and concentration. Not gloppy in any way, however, the red cherry, flower, and cardamom flavors really expand into a very long finish. Drink now or over the next 5-7 years.

    March 4, 2019 - This was very good. Not decanted. Complex aromas of raspberry, crab apple, warm hay bale, and a hint of spice. On the palate, more red berry, rhubarb pie filling (not sweet), and a nice mineral streak. Good acidity and a nice mouthfeel...long finish. This is great now, but will continue to improve.

    March 3, 2019 - It smells like black pepper, blackberry, gooseberry and chocolate. The wine finishes medium. It tastes like chocolate and blackberry. The wine looks rosy coloured. The legs are fast. There is no sediment in the bottle. The wine has bright texture.
