    June 13, 2020 - Smooth easy drinker with great fruit throughout palate. Not over the top but did well with red meat and potatoes.

    June 5, 2020 - Pop and poured this one had very noticeable oak tones with a woodsy and herbal nose. Picking up some berries in the rear. On the palette the licorice and star anise come thru for me. Fruit remains hidden making it a more “powerful” forward wine to me. The finish is long lasting a good 45-60 seconds before lingering off. Enjoying will write more as it opens up.

    May 31, 2020 - Cassis, dark cherry, a little graphite and tobacco leaves. There is a softness of the tannins, but still retains plenty of structure. To my palate, this is in a wonderful spot right now. Juicy fruit and cedar on the finish.
