    June 23, 2020 - Still drinking wonderfully. Black cherries and dark chocolate, plenty of structure. Medium-long, firm finish.

    August 31, 2019 - Similar notes to 2017 tasting. Deep rich fruit in the nose and flavor. Black cherries, currants, licorice, leather, and coffee in the nose. Black cherries, plums, and chocolate in the flavor. Full bodied, well balanced, nice complexity, and a long finish. We were in the 93/94 range.
