    April 23, 2022 - Starting downhill. Big fruity nose---dark cherry and black berries with cocoa notes. Palate shows too much alcohol. Some wood and greenery.

    June 16, 2020 - Outstanding wine at it's apogee. Enticing floral, sweet smells erupt from the bottle on opening. Decanted and consumed. Impenatrable dark color with no browning. Looked like a sturdy mid-life wine. Dark and some red fruit, floral notes, Waves of secondary and tertiary notes. Mid to full bodied, tannins resolved, smooth mouthfeel. Just a joy to drink. Has not lost a step.
