    January 25, 2021 - This was a pleasant Monday night surprise. Rustic yet put together wine with gravel and ripe red fruit (cranberry perhaps) on the nose with a whiff of green pepper. In the mouth, it’s engaging. Bright acidity start to finish, tannins are less so. Powdered marble captured with tart cranberry. It’s like a rustic Beaujolais but bigger, with more depth and power. I am looking forward to trying it 24 hours from now - all I did was run through a Venturi into a decanter and left it only about 20 minutes. Last glass nearly 3 hours later and it seems tighter and more tannic. A wine to get your attention at a reasonable price.

    December 25, 2020 - This has showed better on earlier occasions. Still good, but a bit muddled across the tongue now. Predominately earthy at this point.

    July 29, 2020 - Pop and pour, consumed over 5 hours. Nose: Medium intensity, plum, cranberry, cedar, and pencil shavings. Palate: Medium-full bodied, spicy dark red and blue fruit attack, solid acidic back-bone and good mid-palate persistence, wild game, leather and earthy notes appear in the back-end. Finish: Medium length, dominated by slightly tart red and blue fruit, leather and earth. Solid effort drinking nicely now and will improve over the next 3-5 years. (90-91)

    June 25, 2020 - Nice nose of mixed fruit. Initial impression was extremely positive. No barnyard or more traditional scents that I associate with Bordeaux.

    Impression on the first night was less impressive than the nose had me hoping for. Not as complex or tasty (for lack of a better word). It was fine - not bold, nothing that screamed "keep drinking me". Pleasant.

    Second night had more flavors coming through - more of the red fruit and definitely some pepper. I'll up date with third night as there's a glass remaining.

    It's a subtle wine but perhaps too subtle for my tastes. To be fair, I opened after it completed a cross country journey so that may have impacted it.

    Third Day Update - It delivers. Both my wife and I agreed it was the best glass yet. Still subtle but more complex. The pepper didn’t dominate. Feel much better now.
