    April 16, 2022 - Full bore, powerful, macho Merlot. Lots of structure. In fact, maybe even tastes a little bit acidified to it.

    April 9, 2022 - Similar to my previous notes. Tannins less prominent than my last bottle after just 1 hour of slow-ox. Enjoyed with bacon-wrapped filets and gorgonzola cream sauce. I don't think this will improve with more time--drink up!

    March 1, 2022 - Similar to my previous note and kudos to "streethawk" whose note is right on target. Perhaps more tannins than I remember from prior bottles, but after 2 hours in the decanter, those softened. Enjoyed with bacon wrapped filets with Stilton crumbles. The contrast between the salty blue cheese and bacon and the ripe fruit of this wine was fantastic! 92-93.

    January 23, 2022 - Outstanding, big and bold for a Merlot, lingering finish. New world winemaking at its finest. There seems to be plenty of backbone to this for aging a considerable period. Looking forward to seeing this wine’s evolution.
