    February 19, 2020 - Concentrated berries, dark purplish red, medium plus bodied growing into full bodied, (Szechuan) pepper. Good but fairly simple and too much alcohol. 91+/100

    February 11, 2020 - Deep purple color. Aromas of dark berries. Blackberry, plum and olive on the palate. Full bodied with subtle savory and spice notes. Well balanced, smooth tannins. Drinking very well now

    January 21, 2020 - Delicious ripe dark fruit, black olive, and smoke on the nose and smooth palate with young tannins on the long finish. Still quite primary and needs more time to come together.

    January 11, 2020 - Well, this is screamingly good. Black as night. Nose that leaps from the glass. Just a massive wine that somehow stays light on its feet, which seems to be the hallmark of Carlisle’s 2016s. Wow. 94.

    Bumping this up a point after 24 hiurs finds it even more open and appealing. Impressive.
