    September 7, 2019 - Broken Wings and New Things (Rocknroller's (Kevin & Vicki's Place)): Medium red color. PNP, drank 2 glasses over 2 hours plus. Oh my, this is so pretty tonight. Great nose, lovely perfume, filled with dried flowers, leather and spice, red fruits, cherry, red berry, earth and an almost exotic note. The palate is seamless, elegant, and has such great texture, presence, and balance. Everything on the nose is right there, such purity, lifted, soil, wet earth, sappy (in a good way) red fruit, very engaging fruit, mineral and gravel, red licorice, very long with a spiced finish. Loved it. I suspect this is at peak; I think it can go 5 years easily and probably 10 depending on what you're looking for.

    August 11, 2019 - Delicious fairly light PN that went well with salmon and fresh corn dinner. I think it is good for a couple more years but not more. Very enjoyable now. We drank it up in one sitting.

    December 26, 2018 - opened, double decanted and poured. Initially, enough brett (and possibly VA) to be more than a little off-putting. After a couple/few hours open, it really blossomed to drink very, very well. 84 initiailly, 92-93pts at its best.

    December 23, 2018 - Popped, poured, consumed over next two hours. Opened nicely, but very gradually improved until the final sip. I assume it would have coined to evolve, but it was gone. Love the elegance and refreshing acidity. Paired perfectly with roasted salmon.

    June 24, 2018 - At early peak. Black cherry fruit, silky texture with just a hint of baking spices, licorice and smoky herbs. Drink over next 5 years, maybe longer.
