    October 3, 2019 - Opened two hours before dinner, poured a glass and let it breathe. Initially tight reedy nose, with blackberry and cassis, opening out through the evening to include red plum, oregano, vanilla, melon (?), other fruit. Moderate acidity, grippy medium tannins, long long finish bringing coffee and butterscotch candy (again ?). Tons of fun. RY's Big Rock blends seem intended for hedonistic early consumption; this one is certainly drinking well now and I don't see any reason to wait. Drink up!

    May 4, 2019 - PnP as an after-dinner drink, after a wineless dinner. Very dark with purple rim. Nose initially leads with shoe polish and forest floor, with just hints of cassis and berry fruit behind. The fruits come forward on the palate, rich and thick, with hot peppery tannins and mouth-watering acidity balancing the fruit. I expect it will open up over the next few hours, look forward to seeing what develops.
