    December 21, 2019 - Rich, aromatic spices, dark Violet, cherries. Chewy, resolved tannins, aromatic, time to drink.

    October 10, 2018 - Very nice. Floral and iron straight out of the bottle, but still let it still for bit. Incredibly smooth with well integrated tannins. Didn't even notice the higher alcohol content. The red fruit, minerality, and floral balanced well up front and left a pleasant medium finish. Drink now.

    February 19, 2018 - Smells awesome right now. And incredibly pronounced. And I can smell it from across the room. Red fruit and iron and lifted acidity on the back end. Truly quite stunning.

    April 27, 2017 - Raspberry ruby color with light shone through. Hint of matchstick/sulfite on nose. Powerful mid palate with a lengthy finish. Pristine fruit with a hint of medicinal flavor and minerality. Very well balanced with medium high acidity counterbalancing the 15% alc. this is serious wine that should hold another 5+ yrs. but drinking beautifully right now. Plenty of stuffing but not a fruit bomb. I'm a fan of this style.
