July 22, 2016 - (First tasted after a 90-minute decant) Good, and it went will with our T-bone steak, but it's missing bass notes; I think I opened it a couple of years too early. As often happens with a Bordeaux, the best glass was the last, 4 hours after decanting, when it lengthened and deepened. If you have this one, sit on it for a while, or give it a very long decant.
July 21, 2016 - Consumed too soon (in magnum). Hold 7+ years.

June 22, 2016 - Bought 10/10/13; meant to drink it a year later but delayed until now; it was vinturied & let stand for 45 minutes; medium to dark red, yeasty nose, fruit forward; light sour cherries, trace of cranberries, chalky, some earthiness, fruit forward; sweetness a little stronger than tannins; would pair well with grilled meat like St Louis ribs; needs more cellaring although it can be enjoyed now

June 19, 2016 - The wine looks inky colored. The legs are medium. There is light sediment in the bottle. It smells like blackberry, black currant (cassis), cherry and oak. It tastes like blackberry, blueberry, cherry and oak. The body is medium. The wine has juicy texture. The wine finishes short. The wine has medium acidity.

May 22, 2016 - Fairly dense but not heavy. Dark fruited with a dominant cocoa note. Was tight at first and really needed to breathe a bit to show itself. Tends toward a modern style, but not spoofed. I'd like to try this again in about 5 more years.
