    December 25, 2016 - Good wine for prime rib Christmas dinner. Did not take detailed notes, but remember it being just fine. Outshined by the 2011 Chateau Grange Cochard.

    May 17, 2016 - Deep indigo color. Nose of moss and mushroom. Big, robust flavors that were mostly vegetal upon opening. Afte a couple of hours, the opened a bit to reveal a bit of fruit, chocolate and oak. Still needs more time.

    February 29, 2016 - Definitely has a lot of potential, but just not in a good state right now. There's a nice core of plum and rich black fruit, but also quite a bit of VA and alcohol upfront. Hopefully a few more years will allow it to settle down and find balance.
