    April 22, 2017 - Nice again. Took about 2-3 hours to come together. Some secondary flavors developing.

    February 22, 2017 - This did have some nice exotica aromas of meat/blood, dark fruit, and spices but the alcohol was so high I just could not enjoy this.

    January 9, 2016 - Still dark purple color. The nose explodes from the glass with blackberry, herbs, meaty notes, and a floral component. The palate is still youthful with rich blackberry, violets, meat, and spicy pepper notes on the finish. There is great vibrancy in this medium-bodied wine, and the acidity balances the fruit while the integrated tannins provide follow through. Overall, this was quite a lovely wine that paired beautifully with homemade split pea soup, various cheeses, and biscuits. Glad I have one more left.

    September 19, 2015 - P n P. Nose opened as night wore on very pretty petite floral, smokey n earthy. Min sed. Soft red fruits up front. Some spice and smoke on palate. No flaws. Resolved tannins still gave structure on back end. Held up wel to Burg Tri Tip and grilled Asian marinated sockeye salmon. Yummy night! Thanks Jeff for another tasty wine.

    September 4, 2015 - Big but ok. Took as an after dinner "cocktail wine". Holds the big alcohol pretty cherry & blackberry tones with a tinge of rusticity to it. Great texture, notable oak/chocolate. Still rich enough on the finish to mostly hold alcohol in check but drink in the next couple years
