    February 16, 2020 - Bit of air helps, but this just doesn't get over the hump for me. Toom uch clove, cherry.

    February 14, 2020 - First of three purchased three years ago. Dropped into a decanter, served with dinner and consumed over 3 hours. Mid + weight this shows a really nice balance of acids and tannins. Cherry and leather are predominant flavors with some cooked tomato and dried herbs underneath. Very food friendly. Recommended

    January 24, 2020 - Dried cherry, earthy, savory sweet. Drinking well in the zone. Paired with spaghetti and meatballs. Delicioso!

    January 2, 2020 - Cherry, leather and blood orange. Medium-high acidity, medium-minus body, medium tannins. Very food friendly. Tart and disjointed out of the bottle, but after an hour of air this started to sing, with harmony.

    December 10, 2019 - I found this to be a nicely balanced, extremely enjoyable wine, difficult to find a flaw. Seriously looking forward to trying my other bottle in 5+ years.
