    July 26, 2020 - Pretty steep for 100 dollars.

    Ironically reminds me of both Snowden wine making style and a bit what Chateau Margaux is like at least extremely young.

    May give further thoughts until tomorrow.

    Flinty granite... black currant...

    It's either needs 5 years or so or not worth 100 bucks IMO...

    June 9, 2020 - Hard to rate. PnP on night one, with 2-3 hours of air time. Ungiving on the nose and palate, with faint notes of black currant and oak. Saved over half the bottle for night two, and while still somewhat tight, it opened up enough to show its structure and potential. Plum, black currant, spicy oak, and tar coalesce, but you know it needs another year or two (at least) to really sing. Rating is based on potential, because the quality is there in spades.

    May 17, 2020 - After an hour of decanting, it is beautiful blueberry and blue fruit. Almost like a blueberry sauce (Acqua al 2). Delicate chocolate covered cherries but not a robust sugary cherry. Delicate. Gorgeous rose petals. Light alcohol taste despite it’s actual value.

    Continues opening up- a bit of wax candle. Maybe wax candy. Apple.

    Bouquet of roses. Beautiful. Elegance and delicate. Bit of oiled leather now. Still elegant apple and power. Almost overdrive of power. Pushing through
    Oiled leather and crisp red honey crisp apple. Lovely. Last drop was perfect

    Final notes: could have used additional time decanted. The power was pushing through, even the last drop. The first hour with the blueberry was delicious. Alcohol pushed through the end more than it was in the beginning.

    March 30, 2020 - Open it up. Still needs time, but if you do open, let it decant for a few hours
