    November 25, 2022 - Enjoyed this a little less than the last bottle. This had warm berry fruit, pastry notes, cassis, chocolate, bay leaf and cedar notes. The palate is rich , full bodied and warm, with polished tannins, I feel the ripeness and alcohol is on the edge though, side note for myself a few years down the line I just finished a man cold so maybe my taste is a little off. I feel this needs a few years to properly integrate. 92+

    July 19, 2022 - Superbe mais jeune, de la fougue et
    beaucoup de matière.
    Sur les prunes et les cerises, du romarin et
    une pointe de cèdre qui lui donne une impression de fraicheur.
    Il y a aussi du chocolat et de la terre.
    Les tannins sont bien enrobés et la finale
    bien longue est puissante et langoureuse.
    Excellent avec un beau potentiel pour la cave.

    May 21, 2022 - The BC $10 - $20 - $30 - $40 Challenge (T&F's on Blueback): Had blind - first flight - wine "D" of A to D.

    Darkest in colour. Nose of cherry and earth. Had the best mouthfeel of the flight. This was easily my favourite wine of the flight.

    This wine was the clear #2 to the La Frenz Grand Total for all of the wines.

    April 26, 2022 - Molto Bene Nota Bene! (Vino Loco & Lolo's Seaside Tasting Lodge): Part of an eight vertical tasting. Nice bouquet of mixed berries and dark plums. On the palate, the fruit is a little more restrained due to alcohol, acid and tannin masking the wine in a sour, harsh and hot tussle . This is an infant that's teething. You love it but you don't like it for what it is now. You assess it for its future potential (that's the "90"). Hopefully it matures and becomes a doctor or lawyer or professional athlete ...with a nice cellar that you can raid with parental privileges. Seriously, its got very good structure but it needs to settle down. Vino Loco's second night assessment was the infant has rapidly turned into your abrasive bully type "that punches you in the face and is unapologetic for it". Needs time... we think!
