    August 22, 2021 - It was a nice wine but it had a short finish and the notes detected on the nose seemed muted on the palate

    June 30, 2021 - Sitting in my air conditioned house watching the outside temperature blow through 43 degrees for the fourth day in a row and truly enjoying this massive Bordeaux blend.
    High intensity everything with strawberry and red cherry aromas.
    Dry, high acidity and tannin, full body and high alcohol.
    Flavours of cherry, raspberry, vanilla and strawberry leading to a lengthy finish. A few years of aging will bring out the tertiaries and add the last half ⭐️. As of now, still outstanding.
