    August 15, 2021 - Similar comments to last bottle. Ultimately this wine is disjointed. The acidity to tannins is out of balance making the wine short and fairly tart on the finish. Nose remains muted despite aeration and decant. Would be Ok if $25 a bottle but not at $75. pass.

    May 22, 2021 - Fruit forward blend with plum and fig notes. Deep purple with first pour and many legs in the glass. Nice complement to a NY Strip. Could go longer in cellar.

    January 21, 2021 - Not sold on this wine especially at this price point. Dark purple. Not a very fragrant nose, pretty muted. I find the wine somewhat spritzy on the finish which is not a good thing. The acidity on the finish makes the wine out of balance.

    April 4, 2020 - Great balanced wine that has backbone brought by the mountain fruit and the finesse of the valley fruit. Still drinking young - would benefit from more time but this is a great drinking wine today.

    August 3, 2019 - We let this one breathe for about 3-hrs. Before pouring. Very nice wine.
