    August 8, 2020 - Decanted at 6 pm and tasted over 5+ hours. Initially this was very easy to drink with a sweetish nose of vanilla and cherry. Palate was soft and silky, but the palate got very one dimensional pretty quickly. Finish was only moderate in length. Would have rated this higher based on the first taste but it didn’t hold up. Drink up.

    July 25, 2020 - This really makes me melt. Sooo pretty: a little husky and outdoorsy under its petticoat.

    June 28, 2020 - Clean red fruit nose, some typical oak follows, although not a huge amount. Palate gives good acidity and attack of cherry. Medium finish. Feel like it lacks something,but enjoyable.

    June 23, 2020 - JR Zoom Tasting - Faustino Vertical ('55, '64, '70, '94, '01, '05) (Vancouver, BC): A hint of VA on the nose along with tart red berries, orange zest, and some underlying caramel sweetness. The overall profile is slightly reminiscent to the '55 tasted earlier. Bigger in profile on the palate, with rich dark fruit, mushroom, and cigar box. Rustic in style finishing with plenty of spice. Quite primary with tons of power lurking behind, this needs time to rest in the cellar yet it was a treat to try along side the other bottles tonight. Let these sleep and I'm sure you'll be rewarded.
