    August 3, 2019 - Blackcurrant, Alcohol on the nose. Dense, fruity and concentrated. Close to being a liquor, but OK. I guess it will calm and become better in 3-5 years.

    June 30, 2019 - This is the wine I would ask for on death row.
    Dark. Real dark. Purple tinged edges. Nose of pure sassafras and cool boysenberries. Coaxing brings blueberries and maybe some blackberries. Palate shows amazing balance of fruit, acid and tannins. The oak is there but so in the background, you must search for it. Deft and boisterous, this has amazing lilt and grandeur not found often. Notes exotic tea, this is packed with dense black/blue fruits,; it really is a complete package. Finish is true and it reminds you of but keeps the oak in check. Lovely and deft, this a pure and joyous. I bucked the odds/too young gods and hit it with my Coravin, but believe by next week, this will be a gonner...
    Just ordered 4 more.

    February 25, 2019 - Booker Tasting at Taylor's Wine Shop: My first taste specifically of the Booker Tempranillo EXT. Really enjoyed it, one of the highlights of the night. Deep raspberry, herbs & tobacco, great earth
