    October 10, 2019 - 2019 Hennepin Lake Charity Event (Minneapolis, MN): My yearly sampling of this wine and it did disappoint again. NO balance here. Sweet almost brown sugar elements. Hot! Not for me.

    August 15, 2019 - It was surprisingly great! More of a CA syrah or zin taste -- with some complexity

    August 5, 2019 - Alcohol was a little strong on day 1. Would have given 88. Improved on day 2 to 90.

    July 16, 2019 - This likely would be better with another year or two. It showed great potential, and went well with our steaks. Not too fruity. Did not note the alcohol fatigue others before this date have noted, so aging definitely seems to be the way to go.
