    June 1, 2022 - Drinking beautifully! Rich dark fruit, spice, and floral notes on the open nose and silky palate with resolving tannins on the long finish.

    August 21, 2021 - A brute with finesse. We usually give stuff like this at least ten+ years in bottle, but were in the mood for a baby behemoth, and this certainly hit the spot. Plenty of grip, but fine grained, and as dominated by fruit as you’d expect. Had a hunch that this would go well with a rich fatty homemade cream of mushroom, and it turned out to be one of the best pairings in months.

    August 8, 2021 - This is still a toddler. Decanted over three hours and it barely left its purple hot acid haze. The potential is there but probably 3-5 years out.
