    September 23, 2022 - Way too primary. Fruits are muddled Needs a couple years to soften and come together. Even after decanting for an hour.

    September 16, 2022 - This is probably a bad bottle. As one of my co-drinkers stated "this CDP needs CPR". It was virtually undrinkable and did not have any characteristics noted by other reviewers. I also did not think this was corked.

    August 5, 2022 - Nose of cherries (bordering on Luden's cough drops), slate, and a lot of alcohol.

    Flavors are cherries, plum, and a finish of just a little pepper and slate.

    Decent wine and no hard edges despite being a pop and pour. Consumed over ninety minutes and softened just the slightest bit. There is nothing wrong with this wine, but nothing terribly compelling either. I ended up with six bottles at about only 60% of the current price. At the current price the QPR is nearing the questionable range.

    January 9, 2022 - Still a bit young, the smell of barrel has to be more inegrated into the wine. But shows good potential. Surprisingly fresh for its high alcohol.
