    December 31, 2020 - This has developed an nice earthy funkiness on the nose - I don't recall that from previous bottles, but I am a fan. Not quite as compelling on the palate, but for the money this is nice.

    November 24, 2020 - Cherry, fennel seed, and leather on the nose. Nice acidity to pair with a classic marinara sauce, meatballs and homemade spaghetti. Cherry, plum, and leather on the tongue. It is well balanced now, however the fruit will integrate better in a couple of years. Drink 2021 - 2025.

    November 16, 2020 - Cooperative acidity and tannin even on the first day, when the predominant notes were of earthy cherry and leather. Day two I was very excited to uncork, pour, and fill my nose with a lovely, creamy, cherry liqueur, which showed as well on the palate, but with the whole perhaps just a touch softer than I was hoping. But a very nice wine. Havers may well be rewarded with a few years’ holding.
