    November 25, 2021 - Red blue fruit. Pomegranate and blueberry. Texture and balance.

    January 4, 2021 - Aromas pop with raspberry and blueberry jams with spicy mint, menthol and clove, backed up by milk chocolate and rhubarb. Full but fresh with a slightly chewy texture and waves of plums, raspberry and blueberry fruit. Cola, rose petals, nuanced notes of toffee and roasted chestnut, complex floral and earth tones as well. Bold but beautiful, smooth and vibrant, and should be stellar in three to six years.

    December 4, 2020 - The nose features raspberry, blackberry, tar, and black pepper. On the palate, it's medium bodied with a nice core of juicy acid. The flavors are equal parts fruit, earth, and salt with plum and raspberry, graphite and pepper, and saline. Accessible now with a decant, I see this improving over the next three or four years.

    3 Day Update: Left corked in the kitchen for three days. Original tasting note is solid, including the drinking window, though there's a slightly fungal note on the backside of the palate that adds something interesting to the mix.
