    February 5, 2021 - Decanted 90 minutes. Maybe a touch of brown around the edge, but the color was a nice strong garnet. Initial funk aromas blew off after decanting to reveal really elegant spices, black cherry and mocha aromas and flavors. Very medium bodied, almost light but with a depth of black currants and a spec of forest floor. Fairly well structured finish - just enough acid and tannin to pair well with food. Seems to be at peak, but well stored bottles certainly can last 3-5 more years.

    November 14, 2020 - Dark center, red rim with signs of age.
    Sweet, briar and roast plums (ouch!), very ripe red fruits.
    Smooth, plummy, brandied cherries, violets, touch of lozenge, some tobacco, good acidity and tannin still, alcohol is noticeable, good finish with toasty red fruit, long.
    After another hour of air the fruit is more prominent and the alcohol a little better behaved.
    Excellent Conn Valley Right Bank blend as a homage to Bordeaux. Would not mistake for St Emilion though. Appreciate the Cab Franc in the blend - leafy notes.

    May 29, 2020 - Popped the top to meet ripe cherries and hints of chocolate from the start. The rest of the bottle sat to decant. Definitely dark fruits and aromatic. I didn't realize until reading more how much Cab Franc there was and it made sense on the nose. Initially, the tannins were showing up quite a bit on the palate. After a 2 hour decant, the tannins really mellowed out, but dropped off a bit on the finish. Might drop to a 90. Glad I opened it now

    May 9, 2020 - This needed about 1 hour in the decanter. Really nice tannin structure, but not as fruit forward as I was hoping it would be. Overall, a nice and obviously well made wine, but for me a little disappointing given that I’ve been holding this for about 11 or 12 years.

    April 26, 2020 - Dark fruit with a hint of chocolate or coffee. Drinking beautifully but still with lots of backbone. Paired with grilled ribeyes and was beautiful.
