    March 28, 2022 - Rich dark fruit, spice, and floral notes on the nose and silky palate with refreshing tannins on the long finish. Continues to drink beautifully!

    February 28, 2022 - 2 hour decant. Smells and tastes very old world to me...lots of tobacco and barrel notes to go with the black and red fruit. It has that French "garrigue" component, and my friend said it smelled like the floor in a bar. Not sure what to make of that comment. Think it needs more time. Drink 2023 - 2032.

    February 10, 2022 - Bright fruit note purity. Balanced medium long fruit red and dark. Poured into non-aerating decanter for an hour but not necessary. Fantastic!

    October 11, 2021 - A nice merging of the prior notes: bright and balanced red fruit character, but also with body and richness and underlying black fruit notes. Delicious the whole way through.

    September 9, 2021 - Consistently delicious. A real crowd pleaser. Pop and pour ready. Paired nicely with braised short ribs. Big and jammy!
