    December 20, 2019 - Popped a bottle and drank after a work holiday party. Dark blueberry, baked rhubarb pie, spices, great balance and mouth feel; lovely finish. EVEN better 2 days later, which is the mark of a well-made wine. More balanced and integrated. Delicious. Might be a 97!

    October 29, 2019 - 15.2% abv.(!). 83% cab, 11% merlot, 6% cab franc. Dark purple, ruby rim. Leggy, purple tears. Berries, blue and black, menthol, plum, damp earth. Med+ mouthfeel, some acid, hint of tannins but dissipate quickly, med plus length. Fine, smooth and ready to drink. Quality wine, on par with many Napa bottles in ‘16.

    September 20, 2019 - What can i say? Exceptionally remarkable wine does not do it justice. Perfect balance of dark fruit, grip, brightness, and oak from nose to palate thru the finish. Drink this wine now! Further aging will not make it any better.

    June 29, 2019 - The nose was spicy and fresh, with bright red berry fruits, sweet herbs, hints of violets, brown sugar, and cedar dust. On the palate. I found soft elegant textures complemented by purple floral-tinged dark red fruits, zesty spices and energizing acidity. The finish was long, showing blue and red fruits while coating the senses in purple florals and sweet spice, with a hint of lingering tannin that was nearly enveloped by the wine’s textural depth.
