    November 2, 2014 - muted nose with some smoke and also on the palate. Brooding fruit, some mint and good acidity. Really opens up with time in the glass. Will keep longer, but not sure will improve from here.

    October 15, 2014 - Marks btl seemed fairly rich and typical 2000 like ripe. My lone btl wasn't stored particularly well but I'm inclined to wait till 2020 and see if this takes on more complexity.

    October 6, 2014 - Italians, 2nd Labels of 1st Growths, 95 Prum, +; 10/5/2014-10/6/2014 (Our favorite Italian Place): I liked this bottle a lot and more than a bottle a year or two ago. Slow-oxed for 4 hours, this was open and seemingly at peak. Purple/ruby in color. The nose has cassis, gravel and charred wood, and a bit of graphite. On the palate, this is silky. Lots of cassis and some dark cherries. A bit of earthiness as well. Great balance. Seems at peak but no hurry. Fine tannins. long finish. Great balance.

    July 6, 2014 - The nose was cassis and spice. The palate was cherry, mineral and floral, with a certain thinness that was noticeable, but the acidity kept it lively. Not unpleasant in any way but surprising.

    May 9, 2014 - Decanted 3 hours. On nose alone, I'd give this 92 -- great depth, black cherries / griottes -- could smell this for hours. Pretty disappointing in the mouth, though. Some unresolved tannins, fairly short, even slightly thin. Not convinced that this is going to improve from here.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Chateau Bahans Haut Brion) This was shockingly open with classic Graves on the nose. Weedy tobacco, tar, leather, dark berries and mineral. Sappy and full of fruit in the mouth with an excellent finish. Even more open on day 2 with more sap and density. If anybody has these crack one open as it is singing.
