    August 3, 2017 - Deep, dark red in color. Muted nose of chocolate. Mild tannins, noticeable acidity. Very young, will quite likely be better in the future. Decant. Vastly improved on day two.

    July 23, 2017 - Decanted two hours but needed a third to show its stuff. On the nose the wine shows dark cherry, tobacco, mocha, and molasses. On the palate we got deeper dark cherry, cola, oak, tobacco, and a bit of earth, with a spicy note of black pepper on the finish. Really nice structure with medium tannins and acidity. Beautifully balanced and delicious. And all this for a price point around just...wait for it...$40. We’ll get two more bottles to see how it further evolves after 5 and 10 years.

    June 28, 2017 - 80M, 12CF, 8CS, 16m oak - 30%new.
    Very fruity, black cherries, oak is still a bit agressive, needs more time to integrate. Red berries - blackberries and strawberries on the palate as well as cherry jam. Tannins are soft already. With time it becomes more soft and friendly. A well made wine.

    June 23, 2017 - Approachable with an hour of decanting, but tasted best (with layers of flavors and secondary notes) after 3+ hours of decanting.

    June 11, 2017 - The intensity of this Right Bank Grand Cru is detected at first sight by the deep, brick red hue. The nose reveals enticing violets, kirsch liqueur, and rich chocolate. The merlot-driven palate stays true to the nose with sexy, bright red fruit. Not super-earthy, but this has rigid structure with quick-hitting attitude, gripping tannins, and satisfyingly warm acidity. The extra-long ganache, cranberry, red plum finish is the highlight. Great now, but this should get even better in a couple of years.
