    September 27, 2016 - Opened and decanded after 2 hours; wonderfull nose; black berries a touch of wood and a tobaco-lichorish linker....the palate is dark and rich; a deep touch of fruit-olive-tapernade and a long long linger of lichorishi feel that stays in your mouth for ages....fabulous wine at that price

    August 24, 2016 - Opened and drank a glass or two over several hours, during which this opened somewhat, but was mostly unyielding though intriguing. Forgot about it for 4 days at which point it was drinking very well, though I had the sense that I missed its peak by a day. I will keep my other bottles for at least 3-5 more years.

    August 21, 2016 - Have both the 2009 & 2010 in the cellar. First taste of the 2010 after several years of cellaring. Earthy nose with berry aromas. Still quite tannic/tight & really didn't soften up much during the 4-5 hours we consumed. Feels like I had a similar experience when trying the 2009. I'm going to wait several more years before revisiting- underlying structure seems solid - hopefully a few more years helps both vintages along.

    August 13, 2016 - I bought a case of this one to "buy the 2010 vintage". This is the first one I've drunk. Decanted 90 minutes before consuming with steak. Dark fruit on nose and palate. Lacks differentiation on palate and finish but some notes of plumb, cassis and black pepper. Good balance. Last glass an hour after dinner was decidedly better than earlier as the finish had softened, lengthened and added more complex dark fruit and earthy notes.

    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.
