    September 30, 2022 - Consumed over 2 days, vacuvined, note from day 2. Appearance: Clear with a ruby core and garnet rim. Nose: Clean, medium intensity with developing aromas of dried cherry and cranberry with blueberry undertones, Asian spice, and rusty earth. Palate: Dry, medium acid, soft medium tannin, medium body, medium + intensity, 14% abv with flavors spiced dried cherries and cranberry with an earthy core and a medium + finish.

    Overall an outstanding wine just entering it's prime drinking window showing exceptional balance. Drink now or over next 1-3 years.

    June 18, 2022 - Sampled over 2 days. Translucent dark ruby. Nose of fresh cut violets, forest floor, cinnamon, fennel, red berry. Layers of weighted but feathered black raspberry and black cherry on the satiny palate. Bright acidity and firm tannin leading to a long finish of black berry fruit, tea notes, and granular iron. Lovely. Half bottle, consumed at KOA West Glacier.

    March 14, 2022 - Too hot / extracted for my taste, but not flawed or bad. Dark red with a mix of black fruit into red. Not a cherry light red wine like high country Willamette or Old World. Acidity and tannins are there too.

    January 9, 2022 - Cristom Vertical (Eola Amity Hills AVA): W├Ądenswil and 667 clones. Aged 18 months in 50% new French oak.
    Aromas are bright and fresh highlighting notes of sweet strawberry, raspberry and red cherry with pomegranate, floral pastilles, exotic spices, sea breeze, red vines, suede and light hints of white pepper and earth.
    The palate is bright and lucid with plenty of racy acidity. lively notes of cranberry sauce, raspberry, pomegranate juice and petite strawberries mingle with notes of floral pastilles, Asian 5 spice, suede, saline, chalk and earth. The tannins a soft and almost powdery. The finish is long and lingering.

    October 11, 2021 - Translucent ruby. Nose of anise, black raspberry, musky violets, earth. Layers of inky ripe raspberry, black cherry, iodine, iron granules, and deep soil on the palate. Bright acidity and firm tannin. Long, ringing finish of deep drilling dark berry fruit laden with iron and earth. Wears its 14% alcohol well. Excellent wine with strong, earthy signature. From a 375, consumed during a snow shower in Baker, NV paired with grilled pork chops.
