    October 5, 2020 - dark ruby colored, with sweet cherry , berry and leafy nose. moderate tannins, well balanced with short finish. Went well with our grilled pork chops.

    September 1, 2020 - You have to give this an hour decant in order to give it a decent shot. Nose is light vanilla and oak. The wine swirls around on the palate with some raspy fruit, a lot of chewy tannins, a decent amount of acidity, and dark effervescent notes. I feel this wine is thinner than I can like and seems to lack the depth I like in a Bordeaux varietal. This is an adequate wine; not great and not bad. It's okay, but I won't purchase again.

    May 3, 2020 - Hour decant. Jammy rich style of Merlot, not bad if you’re into that. Nice perfume. Leathery cherry, plum, cola. Faint cocoa notes on the finish.
