    January 19, 2020 - Beautiful pure fruit, hides alcohol content well, long, long finish. A bit more green note than I like. Some call this savory or herbal notes, but it just tastes a little green to me.

    November 30, 2019 - Lots of black fruit, tobacco, and plums on the intense, very bold, but also super complex nose. Medium tannins, full body, more dark berries and fruit, as well as cedar notes on the palate. Long finish. Excellent wine, with suprisjnf balance and finesse, given the 15.6% ABV.

    October 28, 2019 - Served blind to us (along side the 2007 Vieux Telegraphe) by Walter at Lalimes in Berkeley. Dark in color. A floral and dark fruit nose. In the mouth, there are dark plums, blueberries and black raspberries. Some licorice and black pepper in the background with what seems like a bit of nutmeg. Full bodied with tannin remaining. Almost brooding. Good finish.I seemed to like it more than everyone else. I think it might be Syrah,but it seems very cabernet-like so I guess a 2005 left bank Bordeaux. Nope, not close. A delicious wine nonetheless that I'd love to try again in a decade.

    August 17, 2019 - SQN & BBQ (The Krengels - Bannockburn IL): Small glass, brief note from memory. Dense and ripe with great combination of sweet and savory spice. Rich but also excellent balance. Best I can ever recall for this wine.

    June 6, 2019 - Dinner at Red Star; 6/6/2019-6/8/2019 (Red Star Seafood Restaurant): Spectacular wine with black cherry and pepper notes. Decanted for about 1 hour. Lots of fruit and hitting its peak. 96 pts.
