    November 28, 2019 - Cork broke in half but otherwise fine. Dark maroon with slight bricking. Nose is violets, graphite, some oak. Palate is dominated but expressive beams of blackberry and cassis. Flavors show impressive definition and integration with tannins. A winner for sure. Likely on the downside of its drinking window but delicious now and for at least a couple more years.

    October 4, 2019 - Nose of American Oak, black berry, touch of olive, gold bell pepper, and vanilla, same on the palate, big body, young, very tasty, mouth filling fruit, needs 3 years to peak, long, long, flavorful finish.

    February 8, 2019 - Drank Feb 2019 with lamb chops, fresh eucalyptus garrigue brush notes on red berries, balanced in mouth with moderate tannins still, finish a little dry and not living up to up front flavors and nose

    December 31, 2018 - Deep purple color. Nose of Cherries. decanted for over an hour but still uneven and unbalanced. Nice fruit of cherries, berries and plums, but astringent. Disappointing for what should be a premier wine.

    August 19, 2018 - Dark garnet in color with no evidence of bricking. Nose of overripe berry, creosote and a hint of cough syrup. On the palate, rich and full bodied with layers of blackberry, mocha, cassis and allspice. Medium finish with a touch of vanilla. Tannins are fully integrated so this will certainly be wonderful for a couple of years but is unlikely to improve further.
