    April 8, 2018 - PNP. Popular wine. Changed rather rapidly. Went through a couple odd phases.

    March 5, 2018 - pnp. Tasted a little burnt at first but came around quickly. Nice, light cherry flavor. Very smooth and delicious and popular with the audience. Definitely at the end of life cycle, though. Drink up.

    April 23, 2016 - Well balanced but soft and with enough acidity that it should easily last until 2020.

    November 19, 2015 - Popped and poured. Big nose of black pepper, smokey cherry tree, raspberry preserves and some vanilla oak. Surprisingly deep in the mouth. Unsweetened raspberry jam and a healthy shot of resin. Long finish. Much better than the bottle we had in '11. Paired perfectly with pasta and mushrooms, thyme, and brown butter. Drink now or short-term hold. Fine.
