    February 5, 2021 - Wonderful depth but likely peaked a couple years ago

    April 17, 2020 - Wine in the time of Corona Virus - Quarantining in NYC & NH; 3/7/2020-9/1/2020 (NYC/NH): Popped and poured this for our weekly Family Zoom Happy Hour. Pleasantly surprised - this was quite tasty - really crunchy, juicy red fruit (cranberry notes), tannins resolved, acidity bright and an enjoyable savory finish.

    October 25, 2019 - Last bottle from a batch purchased direct. PnP. Cork broke, and crumbled, wine did not seem effected

    Medium purple color, opaque and slightly cloudy. Nose showing dark fruits and balsamic. Palate was faded plum, blackberry, olives, minerals. Some bacon fat through mid palate. Medium weight and finish.

    Wine still drinks OK, but I found the fruit to be faded and less expressive than what I recall from its earlier days. Should drink at this level for a bit, this bottle likely peaked a few years ago. Guessing this moves to a tertiary phase in a few years. Would drink up

    September 5, 2019 - This is my 3rd of 4 bottles. Last tasted in 2013.
    No formal TN, enjoyed over 2-3 nights.
    A more refreshing and red-fruited and plum version of Syrah, with chewy tannins and beautifully integrated acidity.
    Notes of olive and wet rocks.
    Drink now through 2022 or so, really tasty.

    April 18, 2019 - PopnPour, tasted over 2 hrs and day 2
    -opaque dark purple
    -a little smoky bacon and violet
    -med acidity, med/med+ weight faded dark berry earthy on the simple side, med+ tannins; a bit more open with plummy fruit and softer tannins on day 2
    -decent if a bit rustic, would say it needs more time to tame the tannins but not sure if it has enough fruit to last that long - though its evolution on day 2 is positive
