    June 16, 2022 - Whilst nice. This was past its best, raisining from the outset. Even a good selection of meats was not enough to encourage the best here. Drink up.

    May 29, 2022 - Opened by a friend at a gathering. Didn't get much time with it, but it was showing very well and seemed to be in a good spot.

    February 1, 2022 - so young. still dark red at the edge. Nose is still primary Grenache fruit. Very clean and pure fruit. Mid palate has medium density. Balanced. Loads of time to peak.

    January 30, 2022 - Decanted one hour. Complex nose of black raspberry, tobacco, anise, and coffee grounds. Evolved in the glass for another hour. Black cherry with a strong beam of menthol in the mouth. Masculine and borderline brooding but with enough acid to keep things lively. Long, drying finish. Delivers the goods if you like the slightly leaner, less flashy, rugged, old-school style. Ready now but will hold in this place for 2-4 more years. Paired beautifully with a ribeye steak with mustard creme sauce.

    January 29, 2022 - Past peak but still together and balanced. Fruit is fading with tertiary flavors. Medium length and pleasant finish.
