    August 28, 2020 - Delicious, bright, with gripping tannins and dark fruits. It’s been in my cellar since June 2010. Just saw old notes. This bottle has come a long way. Structure is well-balanced and full bodied. I’m glad I have 9 more from the case. This wine has legs.

    August 1, 2020 - 10th bottle of an EP case and the best bottle yet. Prior scores 89 in 2015, and 90 in 2016, and other bottles have been in the 88-90 range. Perfect cork stained like pen ink with tartrates on the cork. Pnp. Aromatically presents crushed black fruits, mint, cedar, cigar box, and incense. On the palate the tannins take a back seat to the subtle yet persistent thread of acidity that rides along with the plum, cassis, anise, tobacco, and mineral finish. Fully integrated tannins with solid length where the anise and tobacco really coast.

    Half the bottle to be held overnight. Will finish the review after day 2. Day 1 score - 92.

    Day 2 - Overnight this lost some zip of the fruit and turned more dry with pronounced cedar taking over aromatically and on the palate. Some of the anise also hangs in the background but this lost intensity. Day 2 score - 89.

    Previously predicted this should be consumed by 2023 but extending that window to 2025 based on the day 1 performance.

    June 12, 2020 - Opened and let air for 2.5 hours.

    Used as the Merlot with week 2 Janet Fletcher Cheese’oclock.

    Excellent; tannins well integrated. I would describe this as a feminine red wine. A bit of barnyard / mushroom but not overpowering. I liked it more than my wife did. I thought is was extraordinary.

    I thought it worked well with Tulip Tree Trillium. Mushroom / barnyard in both cheese and wine.

    I also liked it with Goat Lady Providence. The Goat Lady Worked with 2017 Walter Hansel Cuvée Alyce as well.

    It was supposed to be Sterling Vineyards Merlot and Chardonnay. I subbed 2009 Chateau Bergey and 2017 Walter Hansel Cuvée Alyce Chardonnay.

    May 22, 2020 - This wine is drinking very well right now, and could still go another 10 years. Fruit is well developed and full on the palate, tannins are becoming well integrated.

    May 22, 2020 - Didn’t have this vintage young, but seems quite similar to recent ‘14,’15, 16’s—in short other than softening tannins, I doubt this has evolved much. Has a surprising herbaceous character that sticks out from dark fruit and chocolate notes. Palate is dark, lush, seems merlot driven and quite concentrated. Has a bit of bitter oak character on back end. Smoke and flint on the finish. Not harmonious at this point, maybe could use some more time but also may just be a better wine young. Don’t know the answer.
