    July 22, 2023 - Nose: blackberry, raspberry, mushrooms, tobacco, licorice, dried red fruit. Palate: tertiary flavors dominate after the initial blackberry and red fruit. Licorice, sandy tannins, full body, tobacco, leather, charred oak.

    May 12, 2023 - Friday Night Brown Bagger (R&D’s): Double blind. Darkest color of the flight. Aromas of blackberry, mocha and vanilla. Picks up a pepper note with air. Good depth and complexity on the palate with flavors of blackberry, vanilla, licorice and raspberry. Medium tannins have a slightly chalky texture. Guessed petite. (R&D)

    April 22, 2018 - Deep purple fruited and smoky with some spice. Good complexity, balance and length into rounded but youthful tannins on the finish. Well made with good aging potential...94-95 points
