    March 22, 2019 - Ullage in neck. Cork 2/3 wet, falling apart at base. Poured into a narrow decanter. Fine sediment. Nose of dark fruits, touch of menthol, and earth. Flavors of red/dark fruits, a touch of sourness/tart, hint of cigar ash, integrated tannins, earth, and constantly evolving. Began to show some age after 30 minutes, but still lots of acidity. Moderate+ complexity/Long finish. Past or at its peak.

    March 22, 2018 - Old earthy, leather smell with a little fruit - Taste no more body, oak, and tobacco trying to hang on with a little dirt, turning sour or sour
