    March 19, 2017 - Arcadian Tasting (Shari's Place): Pop and pour and solid. Blueberries, stone, underbrush and vibrant acidity. Should age a few years but I wouldn't wait too long. Nice cross between a Cali/Rhone effort.

    March 18, 2017 - Arcadian Tasting (Shari's Condo): Pop and pour, as this was a replacement for a corked bottle. It also showed REALLY well. Coincidence?

    Firing on all cylinders right now, and I'm sorry that this is my last bottle. Dark fruit, smoke, leather, nice old world character.

    March 18, 2017 - Arcadian Tasting (Shari's, Mpls, MN): Dark red color. PNP, drank a small glass over 20 minutes. Nice, with subtle earth on the nose, dark red fruits, savory hints. The palate is also quite nice, balanced, lean and clean, medium body, dark red fruits, savory, subtle white pepper, medium finish.

    December 3, 2016 - Really enjoyed that bottle - still fruity, silky, feels at its prime

    July 31, 2016 - Porch Pounders (Jim's house): Slow o'd for about 3 hours. This took 15-30 minutes in glass to come around. Initially, painfully dry. Then, tons of character emerges. This is all over the map, and always changing. Fruit runs the whole gamut of red/blue/purple/black. Olive, smoke, meat and a touch of vanilla on the palate. Really enjoyable and amazing for the price.
