    April 12, 2019 - No decant. Drank over two nights. Big and bold. Still young and needs time to mellow. Much better second night. Has a long life ahead of it.

    March 24, 2019 - Dark purple red; pleasant subtle dark notes; smooth, some licorice, a bit of black pepper, pleasantly rounded with a mild bite; very likeable

    December 7, 2018 - Opened 6 hours earlier. Dark color. Big, bold, ripe, and flavorful. Good acidity and layered tannins. I was more aware of the oak in this bottle than I have been in the past.

    After being open overnight, the wood calmed down and its zesty, cranberry acidity asserted itself to freshen things up.

    December 2, 2018 - Powerful and a little raw. Extended decant smoothed it out a bit, but still very tight.

    November 25, 2018 - Deliciously paired with venison pasta ragu. Bigger wine than most barberas, darker fruited and a hint of oak but it's well integrated and this wine maintains that wonderful barbera acid for food pairing. PnPs well but has plenty of life left.
