    June 9, 2019 - Ruby with slight bricking. Aromas of candied red/black fruits, strong note of forest-floor, asian spice and smoky herbs. Medium bodied showing silky and sweet reddish black fruit compote, medium (-) acidity, resolved tannins, earthy notes and a long perfumed finish. This is a much better showing than the previous bottle.

    March 18, 2019 - Burnt red color. Nose has slightly overripe cherry and noticeable etoh. Palate was a mess of stewed red fruit, tar, thinning tannins, trace acid and heat. Tried over the entire evening to like this wine, but ended up pouring out.

    March 16, 2019 - It needed a LONG decant to be drinkable...was okay, but probably would have been better a few years ago (or with another 6 hours to decant)

    December 24, 2018 - Much better bottle. Lots of ripe red fruit but also garrigue and tannins that provide complexity and length that were missing earlier. Savory.

    October 12, 2018 - Brick red in color. Secondary aromas are front and center with game, leather, roasted herbs, red berries, graphite and hint of forest floor on the nose. Medium bodied palate shows fading red fruits, brown spices, a savory/bloody broth like element, medium acidity, ripe tannins still present and a medium earthy finish. Drink up.
