    August 10, 2021 - 1 hour decant. Beautiful ruby color, slight bricking. Amazing blackberry entry,

    July 27, 2021 - Terrific bottle. This one had guts to go with Pasta Puttanesca. Deep, complex, layered and interesting.

    June 18, 2021 - Decanted and drank over 2hours. Big, rich, concentrated dark purple fruits, with great freshness and iron notes. This wine always performs, and at a reasonable price. Bravo!

    April 14, 2021 - Lovely, in balance with great dark fruit. This works great as a complement to food and also great by itself. Needs air, double decanted and better on second day.

    January 17, 2021 - Closed at first, but, after 1-2 hours decanted, it opened up beautifully. Still surprisingly vibrant and fresh, but with a nice softening of the tannins. Should keep in bottle for at least a few years more.
