    July 21, 2020 - Too much wood on the palate. Tannins still strong but approachable (ideally with food). Finish medium-. A step down from my last bottle 3 years ago.

    January 22, 2018 - Very tannic on opening but improved after some time in the glass. Powerful, rich fruit but balanced, good acidity. Will try to wait a year or two before opening the next bottle.

    July 21, 2017 - It's nice, with smokey dark cherries on the nose. Robust tannins still, along with strong acid line. Slightly saline finish. Needs further aging.

    April 1, 2017 - Took 2 hours in the glass to show much. Tight, drying tannins offset by some luscious acid. Some red and dark fruit but still subdued. More traditional style than I remember from the winery visit which is a huge plus. Quite enjoyable despite its reticence. Will try again in 2+ years.

    Update on day 3 after coravin and refrigeration: more open, integrated and still quite tannic.
