    October 22, 2020 - PNP then tasted over two evenings. My first intersection with this wine was over 2 1/2 years ago, and, frankly, I personally preferred that experience to the present one. This bottle was very good but the fruit does not make the statement it did in its youth which felt like the palate being thickly painted on its way to a tannic fog. Some maturity and integration has mellowed out the extremes of fruit and tannin into a graceful delivery which I would normally applaud but in this case I find, at the moment, just too genteel.

    October 16, 2020 - From half bottle with cast iron Moose steak by fire while taking a lunch break during annual Grouse hunt. Browning on the edges, fully mature

    September 27, 2020 - Sunday evening wine tasting with Charly, popping the 2009 after tasting the 2006. Short 30 min decant. Deep purple Color. Quite fruity, raspberry, Cherry, pepper, vanilla, a bit of earthiness and saltiness. Med acidity, full body, high alcohol, Med flavor intensity, Med+ finish, Med tannins. Very fruity and sweet, lots of Licorice, a bit of pepper, you taste the Heat and alcohol. This is a bit less subtle vs 2006 or 2003, really still a fruit bomb. Nice but young so give it some more time !

    September 24, 2020 - From half bottle. This has years ahead of it still but enjoyable now with firm tannins and lengthy finish. Decanted. Gained complexity over an hour in the decanter. Better than expected.
