    November 6, 2019 - Pnp at a gathering. Was very closed. No aroma to speak of and very little fruit. Rather alcoholic and very tannic. Think a decant is needed right now or the wine is in a dumb phase. Not sure. Score is based on the last sip that showed potential. I would hold this for a few years or decant for an hour or more.

    October 5, 2019 - Red & black berries, little cherry. Soft tannins & acidity. Medium bodied, but has a surprisingly long finish. Really jumps up on you as to how good it is.

    July 5, 2019 - Dark ruby color. Merlot dominates the profile with black currants, blackberry, smoke and soft leather. Soft tannins. I love Washington Merlot.

    December 17, 2018 - The '16 is 51% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Malbec.
    The nose shows scents of blackberry, plum, cassis and fig with aromas of herbs, cedar, mocha, pencil shavings and hints of vanilla and floral accents.
    The palate shows a full body. Firm, full tannins and juicy, above moderate acidity come with a creamy mid-palate and smooth textures. Flavors of marionberry, black plum, fig and cassis come with poultry herbs, no.2 pencil, cigar, cedar, dark chocolate, vanilla and traces of espresso.
    The grippy finish lingers with the tannins gaining intensity.
    Overall this is clearly very young, but with air time shows nicely. I'd give it a year or so, but should drink well for a decade+
