    October 25, 2020 - Has evolved slightly from the bottle I had early this year. Big juicy mouthfiling fruits, spicier than I remembered the last bottle. Tannins pretty evident, gives some good texture but they should smooth a bit more with time.
    My last bottle which I didn’t mean to drink! But it went well with our BBQ ribs so I can’t complain.

    July 24, 2020 - I can smell this across the room. Lush, gulpable with a great crisp, mineral finish.

    June 29, 2020 - Dark translucent purple garnet in the glass with delicate yet pungent aromas of forest floor, flint, currant leaf, and wild berry. The palate is crisp and spicy with rich earth and berry driven fruit, firm tannins, and good persistence. As usual these wines have gorgeous balance and complexity at such a young age and will continue to improve as the tannins mellow.

    June 13, 2020 - Love everything I've ever had from Hardy. Just like all of his wines, this is so much fun to drink. Its got loads of fruit, but really amps up the complexity compared to the Familiar with spiciness and herbal notes. A good decant or some air time really helps it express itself.

    April 22, 2020 - Call BS on label claim of 13% alcohol. How is it we don't remember remainder of the evening? It was a wonderful wine to have prior to dinner. We had a typical dinner wine as a followup, nothing unusual for us. Though we were both a tad intoxicated.
