    January 4, 2019 - 3 hour decant. Pitch black body with purple hints. Small, even legs. Nose has chocolate, blueberry, plum, and oak (wine is aged in french and slovenian). Palate is dense with chocolate, blueberry, iron, anise and tar. Assertive, grippy tannins. Finish is long but lacking complexity and flavors start to seem disjointed. Food helps with the finish

    September 29, 2018 - For some reason this bottle did not do it for me, the oakiness of it did not sit well with the fruit and I found it very off balance.

    November 15, 2017 - Deep ruby, 13.5% abv. On the nose barnyard, blackberry, vanilla notes. Dry, medium(+) acidity, hing tannin, medium alcohol and medium(+)-full body. Medium (+) blackberry, pepper, oak, mocha. Good length, dry finish undepinned by fruit and sprinkled with bright acidity. Rustic, rough on the edge.
    Decant, drink with food.
