    November 26, 2021 - Had with a 14 and found the 16 to be much more preferable. Wine has nice notes of cherry and red fruit. Bright flavors with a nice dusty flavor at the finish. Has a nice deep red color. Wine doesn’t feel to have a lot of tannins and should be drunk in the next couple years.

    October 24, 2021 - Fairly soft entry, some nice pretty aromatics and a light in colour and style as you would expect. Opens up with much more richness, ripe dark cherry fruit with gentle bitter black tea notes. This is a fairly fruit forward, easy going but generous wine. Not sure what all that means for long cellaring but this is doing really well now. 90

    October 17, 2021 - A very intense, juice experience. Expressive nose first with dry bitter cherries and later airy with earth and sweet cherries. Medium to full-bodied with licorice and spices ending in a long finish. This is elegant and balanced. The tannins is noticable and the wine develops during the evening, but it is great at every point.
