    July 12, 2020 - 750 ml, brought to room temperature from the cellar, decanted 2 hours, and drank over 4 hours.
    Dark red color, medium density, no bricking.
    Great nose with aromas of dark fruit, fig, earth and mild barnyard.
    This wine hits your palate with concentrated dark fruits of plum, blackberries, black currant and a hint of raisin. There is a bright acidity and a peppery bite that give way to a vast array of secondary flavors, starting with dates, slight mocha, and evolving into forest floor and mild tobacco.
    The evolution of flavors persist in a long, long finish of 90 seconds or more. This is an extremely seductive wine, drawing you back for more of an amazing sensory bouquet. There was a hint of tartness in the mid palate at the beginning that faded after a few hours. There is plenty of acidity, creating brightness on the initial flavors and harnessing the evolution to the finish. Tannins are very fine grained initially and became more silky over the course of the experience.
    This wine is in a great drinking window now. The acidity and tannins give this wine great backbone and I expect it will be remain in a great drinking window for the next 5 years or more.

    April 25, 2020 - Decanted for 2+ hours, absolutely delicious. Still very fruity with lots of life left.

    December 17, 2018 - Nice big wine with lots of dark fruit. Decanted for about an hour and it was still a bit tight.
