  • Loads of dark fruits, beautifully balanced, blueberry, adequate acidity, big, absolutely gorgeous. Lots of tart cherry on the finish

  • I figured it’s SQN it’ll be amazing and I wasn’t disappointed.

    Needs some decanter time but so far beautiful dark blue fruit and a touch of blueberry/açaí and black pepper. Gorgeous. Crazy young obviously.

    2025-2035+? (97-100 range)

  • Annual Friendsgiving Gathering (TLV's): Decanted about an hour. Dark inky color with aromas of currants and grapey black fruit. Hints of game and pepper underneath, as well as a subtle violet/floral quality. Full-bodied and youthfully firm tannins have a fine edge. Flavors of blue and black fruit, chocolate and spice. Lengthy finish. 93-94 pts.

  • Way too young, but with five in the box and the next round of ordering likely in the next few months, took the opportunity to crack one open. Beautiful packaging (and we know that's what it's all about).... glass.... artwork.... owc... all stunning.

    Getting into the wine, there is an initial blackberry attack that makes this quite approachable today -- but structure follows closely behind, with medium levels of soft tannins and a body that seemed to expand as the wine sits. long finish is where this shines, with some chocolate notes, a savory element, and continued dark fruit. got better as the night went on, so expect this will age nicely. I'll be a buyer for the next release

    Night 2 (saved a glass) -- a phenomenal herbal/hay character coming through, especially on the nose -- it adds a lot to the fruit (still present) and gives a glimpse of what is to come. Increasing score 95 --> 97. Suggest that people decant the bulk of the bottle for a while (5+ hrs), while enjoying a glass pop-n-pour.
