    December 9, 2021 - Fragrant nose of cracked pepper and blackberries. Medium to full weight. Savory finish. Imagine a mid tier Cote-Rotie but then eliminate any microbial induced earthiness or cured blood notes and keep only the fruit and the oak, and this is what I believe you would have. Pleasant but not striking in any way.

    P.S. Unfortunately, fell apart on the second day, with the acids becoming disjointed.

    November 15, 2021 - Black cherries jam, animal, loads of cherries, almost too much, vanilla... Fresh red fruit and ripe red cherries, loads of integrated tannin, nice balance.

    April 8, 2021 - This is maturing in a much better way then anticipated. Drinking very well and looks like it will continue to do so for a while.

    July 31, 2020 - Very good cork; dark colour; surprisingly youthful; dark sweet fruit,spice, well-resolved tannins; good soft texture; lots of life yet
