    August 23, 2020 - Opened one hour in advance. Bright cherry aroma. Rich, sappy flavors of cherry, black fruit, and a bit of forest floor. Some tar in the finish. Lively, vibrant, fresh, good depth, firm backbone, some complexity, great staying power. Still going strong.

    November 21, 2019 - 1hr decant. Dark red color. French like nose. Wine was very thin but no resemblance of bricking. Lovely nose but wine lacked depth and fruit. Not sure if it needed more air, was past prime, or just not in my wheelhouse.
