    February 18, 2021 - Vibrant purple color. Deep but inviting nose of black currants, sweet black cherries, and a complex host of earth, rocky soil, graphite, black tea, anise and charcoal notes. Gorgeous mouthfeel on the palate, precise acidity, structured tannins, very well balanced. Fleshy, tangy, deep and pure black currant fruit, loaded with complexities of pencil lead, eucalyptus, tobacco, oregano, iron, mint chocolate chips. Deep but vibrant with a long, earthy, mineral-laden finish. This will age wonderfully for many years but is already so expressive in its youth, too.

    Red Fruit, aromatic, cedar nose.
    LMB. Good acid/tannin balance.
    Red fruit (cassis, plum) attack. Cocoa Midpalate.Soft finish.
    Lighter, Softer acids/tannins than 2013 JO. More approachable.

    October 2, 2020 - Very floral aromas. Smooth, integrated tannins providing structure and finesse. Big blackberry flavors having a smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Very nice wine.
