    December 27, 2016 - Nice bottle of Tardive that seems to be in a good place for drinking. Still primary with grapey dark fruit and raspy tannins but the acidity is provides a nice uplifting affect. Don't hesitate to try one now... not sure what age will bring.

    October 23, 2016 - Decanted for 30 mins. Medium bright purple color. Nose of black cherry, plum, earthy forest floor, some iron and herbs. Very nice. Similar flavors on the palate with juicy dark red berry fruit, pomegranate, iron and minerals. Medium to medium+ acid, medium tannin and body. Very balanced all around. Drinking great at the moment.

    September 26, 2016 - The wine has softened a bit since my last bottle three years ago and is entering approachability. This a great food wine and tends towards earth and savory flavors. Perhaps there is some fruit lingering under the remaining tannin but it's good enough just the same.

    September 2, 2016 - Nice nose with good depth. Tart red fruits with wet forest floor and high acidity. Good, not yet at peak. Hold.

    June 20, 2016 - From MAGNUM:
    Color: Ruby core with a light meniscus
    Smell: Earth, floral, dried beef, with black & blue fruits.
    Taste: Red fruits dominate with hints of earth driven notes of mushroom with hint of spices
    Overall: While this is certainly enjoyable now, it will clearly only get better with time sideways. After about 12 hours in a decanter the wine still showed it's sharp acidity on the palate and was only at it's best with food. Light bodied, high acidity, and a wine that really calls for something fatty to be served with it like Eppoisses. Outstanding. Given that this is a Magnum, I'd suspect that this will be best in about 5-8 years from a 750ml and deserves 10+ in a Magnum format.
