    March 25, 2022 - A bit sharp, coconut notes, over raspberry. Bery fone tannins.

    March 11, 2022 - Found another one @ discount bin price of $11. Definitely not as awesome as prior bottle. Like an aged old wold wine. Worth a shot. Would try again at that price.

    February 11, 2022 - I will no longer put comments on wine as some of the fellow cellar tracker people do not always agree with my comments - that is life in social media these days oh boy eh?!

    February 4, 2022 - Surprisingly enjoyable wine. Purchased off of a clearance bin for $11. First pour out of the bottle showed its age. Medium ruby color with moderate bricking around the edges. Nose and palate were unexpressive and nondescript. But each taste on the first serving evolved and improved. To the point that I really wanted a second serving, which was even better than the previous serving. The wine opened up over an hour or so to show lead pencil, tobacco, maybe some slight terroir, and a little chocolate. Dark fruits also emerged; blackberry and plum come to mind. Really enjoyed this. Need to let it breath and give it a chance to show its best.

    September 19, 2021 - Popped and poured; consumed over two days. Really delightful throughout but the most expressive on Day 2. The wine pours a deep ruby color with medium viscosity and no signs of sediment. On the nose, medium intensity with bright, fresh black and red cherries, potpourri, blood orange and spices. On the palate, confirm the fresh cherries, raspberries, fresh dill, dry earth, minerals, and spices. Medium body. Medium tannin. Medium+ acid. The finish lasts for well over a minute and its immensely satisfying. Great on its own and fabulous with food too. A contender for value of the year at sub-$14 USD.
