    April 23, 2022 - Bad bottle? Harsh and acidic. Little to no nose. Very disappointing

    November 21, 2021 - Double decant. This was a wow wine for me. Cherry and blueberry. Full bodied. Beautifully textured. Nice minerality. Very long lingering finish. Very different. No discernable rocks funk. Tastes like it’s ready to drink right now.

    October 27, 2021 - Long decant and then it was day 2 and beyond where it became a beautiful wine. Flowers and fruit unfolded on day 2. Well done.
