    November 20, 2021 - Medium bodied, light tannins. PnP, very approachable. Enjoyed without food then an hour later with cheese and crackers. Mourvèdre comes through strongest; Syrah is noticeable but subtle. Leather and dark fruit on the nose. Good length on the flavor. Overall really lovely and appropriately priced at ~$150

    November 13, 2021 - Consistent with my prior bottles. Light, lean, and elegant with high toned, spicy, and complex flavors. Would love to do this as a ringer in a Rayas lineup. Delicious.

    August 16, 2021 - PnP with tacos from an original bottle bought in 2011. This is in a great drinking window. Classic aged CdP profile, full bodied, long finish. No hurry but this may be at its peak.

    February 7, 2021 - Tasted over 3 hrs, bottle from secondary market
    -dark red
    -moderately expressive grenache-y kirsch and pine
    -med acidity, med weight some faded somewhat monolithic stony red fruit with noticeable heat carrying a bitter note through to the finish where only med- tannins remain
    -this bottle not very interesting at this stage as it lacks complexity balance
