    June 7, 2020 - This wine is shining right now. I wish I had 6 more. It's balanced and complex, with the typical strawberry-forward flavors now complemented with darker fruits, a hint of smoke, and shake or two of pepper.

    February 24, 2019 - Still going strong. Warm, complex, spicy.

    No formal note. The first american wine to impress ms. Browne.
    Surprised at how rhone-like this wine was, though garrigue was replaced by a faint eucalyptus note to my palate. But comparisons are pointlessly if only to dispel the notion of overripe fruitiness. It’s a very enjoyable, balanced rhone blend wine. The raspberry and savoury characters finished with decent length and overall i was left with the impression of a wine entering its maturity plateau.

    Drink now or hold until 2025

    December 4, 2016 - Leather, spices, meat. But shorter than expected.

    November 25, 2016 - Complex nose showing earthy notes, chocolate and leather notes. Medium to full bodied, very smooth and aromatic, delivering flavors likewise the nose and some fruit still hanging one but the tertiary flavors are in the fore. Drinking beautifully now with some years ahead but no reason to keep it for very long.
