    December 25, 2020 - Seems unfair for me to rate this when it’s so far over the hill. I’d say it’s sufficient to note that its window has passed. Stewed blue fruits with woody anise and spice notes. Smelled hot. Palate was very secondary and hot. Dried blueberries, dusty earth, and a raisiny finish.

    September 18, 2017 - really "Good" Acidity on this bottle, starts out Tart but not too much. It improved at 1 hour was a nice mix of Rhone styled new world Grenache and some Earthy Pinot notes. Quite Brambly but worked well with Chicken, Rice and Haricot Verts...More fruit showed toward the end. Reminded me of a Dirty & Rowdy Mouvedre at times. Know it has Cabernet but it was hiding. Good showing....
    2 days later much better showing more Fruit and depth.

    November 20, 2016 - Clearly past it's prime. Asparagus on the noise and tartic acid on the tongue.

    August 4, 2011 - Scholium Dinner (Ripple - Cleveland Park, Washington, D.C.): While drinking this with Abe, he spent a good deal of time describing this wines story and the role that winemaking had in the final product. I'm happy he did, because when I first smelled the nose I was sure that it was heat damaged. Abe said that reduction was a natural part of this wine, and not a flaw. Good to know. The nose had stewed warm dark fruits; plums, blackberries, and blueberries. There was also a warm charcoal note too. The palate was far more to my liking with spicy red and dark fruits with a nice floral component. Very nice acidity on the finish too.
