    July 4, 2021 - Opaque crimson. Potent, primary nose of vanilla-flavored oak, kind of like a coconut macaroon, and sweet, ripe, blueberries. Pretty full-bodied, with surprisingly little tannin for its high level of extraction, quite perceptible alcohol, and heaps of dark fruit—not so overripe as to be raisined, but definitely jammy and a bit syrupy. Plush, slick mouthfeel and pretty good length, though there’s notable heat on the finish. This tastes like it was meant to be enjoyed young. It’s probably not for everyone, but would pair nicely with sufficiently rich food.

    June 30, 2021 - Three hour decant. Nearly opaque plummy magenta color. Black cherry compote, blackberry/blueberry jelly, rose petals, poppyseeds, date, cacao, and bran muffin on the complex, boldly fruited nose. Super smooth, dry palate, with fine acidity. Firm, dusty tannins on the longish finish.

    This wine is drinking impressively these days. It’s simultaneously muscular and elegant.

    May 25, 2021 - Monthly Men's Wine Dinner (2120 Restaurant, Seattle): This showed with more age than I would have expected, the tannins being more velvety than young. Oak not quite integrated but delicious black fruit showed through. Try again with a little more cellar time. My #6 of 6 and the group's #5.

    April 21, 2021 - Three hour decant. Inky magenta color. Nougat-infused brownie, black cherry, ginger, poppy seed, and raspberry preserves on the confectionery nose. Very smooth, dry, decadent, full bodied palate. Firm tannins on the longish finish.

    February 5, 2021 - Decanted three hours. This showed with much deliciousness but not as well as the last bottle after 6.5 hours in the decanter. Rough tannins along with the blackcurrant, wet earth, mocha, and spice. I still recommend holding. 94+
