    October 5, 2014 - The more I sip this wine, the more I like it. Deep garnet robe. At 5 years of age a still reluctant nose. Medium-bodied merlot-based flavors with ample glycerine, finishing with a light tongue-lashing of tannins. Youthful balance without an overabundance of alcohol (as one might find in too many New World Merlots). I suspect this wine won't hit its peak till 2019. The quality of this family-owned property shines thru.

    November 2, 2013 - Very simple drink, but enjoyable. Pop and pour, not much complexities but pleasant fruit and gentle tannins.

    June 9, 2013 - Medium bodied, mild tannins, nice fruit ... didn't expect much for a st. emilion bordeaux at this price, but it still delivers.

    April 25, 2013 - Floral, slightly lifted nose, a bit gamy, very classic and food friendly while still having fruit and friendly tannins.
