We're entertaining my in-laws and parents today, fun 🤷‍♂️. Bottles go fast when you're pouring for six glasses.

Consistent notes from our prior bottle, decanted 2+ hours:
Nose of cedar, red raspberry, juiced cherry, cranberry and wet leaves.
Palate has rehydrated cranberry, partially dried cherry, raspberry juice, unsweetened cranberry juice, early spring strawberry and light, loamy earth.

Really wish this was showing better, improvement is in question.

Nose of cedar, red raspberry, juiced cherry, cranberry and wet leaves.

Palate has rehydrated cranberry, partially dried cherry, raspberry juice, unsweetened cranberry juice, early spring strawberry and light, loamy earth.

Slightly grippy tannins, otherwise a very smooth finish, medium length. Our first go around with this producer. I bought at a local shop tasting event, decanting this was the way to go. The fruit was solid when I first tasted, but the tannins seemed to get in the way. You'll (generally) never get to taste a bottle at a walk around that has had the proper air, so you need to go on faith and experience some times. I'm not disappointed with this bottle tonight, decent show. $25

Another 3-5 years of patience will do no harm to this bottle, likely benefit.

Austere bitter strawberry that eases with a couple of hours. Drink on the cooler side. Had it with tuna steaks in lemon oil, Swiss chard, and polenta. Used some wine for the sauce.

bouquet of candied cranberry, balsamic, sour red cherry, wet earth, animal funk... mouth is dirty and woody. red berries are an afterthought. rustic and tasty.
