    October 5, 2019 - Wasn't too accessible at first, but it balanced out after an hour or so. Then black cherry and tobacco. Even more rounded and smooth on 2nd night with little fruit dissipation. I think a solid version with a number of years left in it.

    February 18, 2019 - Terrific! Wine opened up quickly. Didn’t even need to be decanted. Tannins are very well integrated and I would have to say this is ready to drink. Don’t think it gets any better but was absolutely lovely and enjoyable with the pizza and pasta dinner.

    seamless and delicious
    tannins have integrated so secondary notes predominate
    so much blueberries but an earthy elegance too
