    October 14, 2022 - Pop the cork, wonderfully stinky in all the right ways. Barnyard for days, wet rock, creosote, leather, cigar, cedar. Masculine like the day is long. The beauty of this wine, for us, is the nose. I want to make an incense stick out of the notes of this wine. The palate: earthy, tarish, forest floor, some cedar, zero fruit, tannins still hang on the finish. We were intoxicated by the nose, the palate doesn’t match but an experience nonetheless. We’d buy this again for the nose alone.

    September 23, 2022 - Popped and poured, and drank over 1.5 hours. Great wine, and drinking well!

    August 21, 2022 - Served with lamb chops (that I overcooked), zucchini fritters and a tomato salad this was popped and poured.
    Nice nose of cedar and black fruit but not as pronounced as the 1990 Cos of a few days ago. Dark inky color, on the palate, this is profound and complex with excellent depth, yummy fruit with a tinge of greenness and a slight bitterness on the end that I find typical with the estate and that contrasts nicely with the sweetness of the fruit. Long finish.
    Delicious and patience is finally rewarded as the tannins are now manageable and not overpowering the fruit. Drink now and over the next decade or so.
