    March 29, 2021 - Clear medium/deep ruby; clean medium nose of wood, dust, soil, ripe red cherries and savoury herbs; dry; medium plus acidity; medium plus tannins; medium plus alcohol; medium plus body; medium plus flavour intensity; palate is tarter with a slightly confected note and the addition of cocoa; medium plus finish; drink now or in a few years; decent wine - wished it was more complex for the price point

    January 15, 2021 - Nose: Cherry and dark fruit, some vegetal notes
    Palette: Pepper, leather, no fruit, light tannins

    This definitely should be let to breathe for a while after opening. Paired with a filet mignon
