    December 27, 2019 - Dark blood red, no light showing. Beautiful nose with strong secondary notes. Tannis resolved, slightly sweet. Smooth mouthfeel. Wonderfull fruit notes with secondary flavors very noticeable. Long, long finish. Very enjoyable wine.

    September 14, 2019 - Another very lovely bottle - as for my last note still very red and with a long finish - bottle variation in a case can be fascinating if annoying

    July 20, 2019 - Very good, 1 hour decant. Good fruit, very smooth.

    June 28, 2019 - I have a glass here now and I brought this bottle to the Wine Watch happy hour. We are all stunned by how fresh this wine is and unlike the experiences below, my wine was substantially better! The nose was demure with some oak and mustiness, but the color was of a much younger wine. There was a good amount of fruit in the swirl and some elegant, smooth, resolve tannins. This was decant about an hour to air off the slightly funky nose, and it was definitely a crowd pleaser.

  • indiscriminate palate wrote: 88 points

    April 20, 2019 - Gritty tannin, nice acidity, slightly overdone oak; fairly simple on the nose; elegant, light on the palate. Very little fruit, mostly about structure and slight tertiary notes at this point. Nothing earth shattering but enjoyable.
