    November 14, 2020 - Needs a few hours to open up. Big berry notes on the front end.

    September 23, 2020 - Beautiful wine, with nice aged notes, and that special Merlot brand that is not the same as CS. The early palate is an elegant, soft chocolatey melange. Great acid/tannin balance, though both are probably at their peak. Not a lot of berry in this wine, more soft earth and leather. Medium weight. A very enjoyable wine.

    April 25, 2020 - Aged great, fruit forward, plum colored, never disappoints. One of top merlots out there for my money
