    September 11, 2020 - This wine has evolved quite a bit from when I last tasted it. The wall of impenetrable tannins has noticeably softened into the background and fruit is more prevalent. I'm glad to see that the fruit seems like it will outlast the tannins here. This seems in a sort of a middle stage right now were the fruit and tannins are competing but nothing is to the forefront anymore. I'm very interested to see where this wine goes over the coming years with 9 bottles left in my cellar.

    July 26, 2020 - Drinking well at this time. Rich with fruit and touch of raisin. Tannins are fine but with grip.
    Paired with a rustic eggplant parm and veal chops on the grille.

    May 21, 2020 - Deep ruby. Thin almost purple legs. Ripe black berries, prune, raisin and a little cedar. Mid- tannins and acidity.

    February 10, 2020 - Enjoyed at Eataly in Vegas. PnP. Great right from the start. Deep, rich blackberries. Plum. Fig. Tastes like a really rich, dark amarone. Plush mouthfeel and medium finish. Will likely improve over time but really great now.

    January 19, 2020 - The first sip made me say “wow”‘out loud. Beautifully balanced wine, elegant and supple. Rich and ripe and drinking very well now but perhaps even better in 2-3 years.
