    December 31, 2021 - Soft tannins and well integrated layers of peppercorns, cedar, dried figs and mint.

    December 1, 2021 - Fantastic. Surprising for the cartoonish bottle.

    November 28, 2021 - Decanted and drank most of bottle yesterday. With friends and didn't have a chance to concentrate on the wine. Quarter bottle left after in decanter for about 5 hrs and out into 187 ml bottle. Now d2. Aromas of tart red cherries, blackberries band some cranberries w bark and a hint of vanilla. Palate w tart cherries, tart blackberries, a bit of vanilla and wood. Mild-moderate tannins. Excellent acids. Moving toward an elegant phase with the oak beginning to integrate. Drinking nicely now but with plenty of life left. 90 on d2.

    November 17, 2021 - Enters sweet with cherries and vanilla, then turns briny and jagged before finishing on sweat and leather. Complex even if somewhat disjointed; going to give it some time to come together.
