    October 4, 2021 - Light, rust red color. Raspberry with wet tobacco leaves and earth. Very light, slightly austere wine with some smoke and strawberry. Planning to drink that last bottle soon.

    p.s. grilled cheese and summer tuna salad

    July 11, 2021 - This was a little too “light”. Seemed a little “washed out”.

    January 16, 2021 - Dull Brownish-red color. Chocolate-covered strawberries and black cherries on the nose. Notes of sweet, ripe red and black cherries dominate. Mixed ripe purple fruits rule the finish, which is sexy and lengthy. Delicious. This was the final epic wine of the night at the deer lease.

    December 8, 2020 - Wine was properly stored from purchase upon release until consumed.
    Cork was OK, but the wine is clearly getting past its prime. Still good, but not great, as it was a few years back.
    Drink it now if you have it, it will not get any better.

    December 5, 2020 - Soft nose of raspberries left a little too long, old leather, clove, cumin, rose, and pencil eraser. Fully resolved tannin on the palate. Shortish finish. I imagine this was more dynamic 10 years ago.

    (Chateau Beaucastel) Ah . . . this showed so well. Beautiful Beaucastel secondary nose. Minerals, blackcurrants, tar, barnyard, black berry. Nose was singing and kept changing for the better. Silky palate with a feeling of weightlessness. Soft tannins, ripe fruit and a long finish. Beautiful.
