    February 19, 2021 - Paleish colour. some ageing for sure. Nose of some fruit and exotic spice. One can see tar if one tries. Palate remains surprisingly tannic. A good wine but rather anonymous at this stage. I hope for more from remaining bottles and will give them a few years yet.

    February 4, 2021 - Multiple hour decant. Upright almost 4 months after shipping. Served low 60's.

    Brick color. Great nose, everything is there that you'd expect, but nothing extraordinary. Alcohol present.

    The palate is kind of "thin bordering nothing" and then hit by tannin and alcohol on the finish.

    We'll see night two<<<<<no improvement. Flawed bottle???

    December 3, 2020 - Decanted for two hours but still very tight. Much better on night two. 14.5%

    November 20, 2020 - Orange-brick red in color. Classic dried dark cherries and flowers (potpourri) and balsamic aromas. Medium-bodied showing macerated cherries, cherry pits, a savory/saline note, medium (+) acidity, fine tannins and hint of tobacco leaf on the medium and drying finish.
