    May 6, 2017 - Tasted blind, on the nose was a little tight in the beginning but opened up in the glass to reveal earthy mushroom notes, with a bit of cassis, graphite, and gun powder. I could sit and smell this wine all night and be happy... In the mouth this is a wine with massive structure and very long finish. There was a dominant herbaceous (slightly green) character on the attack, that leads to red fruits, floral, truffle, there was so much to like about this wine, and with the huge structure I feel this wine has many years to go, and may justify a higher score in the future.

    February 21, 2017 - First growth dinner (Cafe Maxx, Pompano Beach, Florida): Elegant weight. Light ruby color. A nose that shows real class. Very floral, eucalyptus, mushroom, red fruits. Light on its feet. Just kept improving with time. Clean on the nose and palate.

    February 3, 2017 - Appealing smoke and spice notes but a backpalate and finish that shows too much heat.

    December 25, 2016 - Tobacco and leather aromas, and some fruit, secondary and tertiary. Fresh and retains good fruit. Balanced, pure and long.
