    January 9, 2022 - Excellent wine but really needs to sleep for a decade. Fun to see it so young and imagine when it becomes a teenager or better yet, a young adult.

    January 3, 2022 - Ok I just bought 4 and ran home and opened it was probably a little crazy but whatever... I like the elegance and jammieness of this wine. Its not as big as 16 and not as complex as 15 but very good if not great...

    December 31, 2021 - Decanted this wine for about 3 hours in order to open the wine up. On the nose there is a dustiness that surrounds black fruit such as black plum and blueberries. On the palate this wine was so easily approachable for being so young. Incredible mouth feel and a finish that lingered very long. Needs more time in the cellar.

    December 29, 2021 - Opened for 3 hours. Color is deep garnet but more translucent than opaque. On the nose: Cassis, leather, green pepper and dark chocolate. On the palate: Tart Cassis, red berries, cherry, pomegranate and a bit of spice on the finish. Very good acidity and good mouthfeel. It needs some years to integrate but it’s already great.
