    June 13, 2016 - Mature black fruit with leather, reduced mushroom and plenty of umami. Popped and poured, this was best after open for 15 minutes when it expanded slightly, and was at its best through the first hour, after which it started shortening and getting tired.

    August 21, 2015 - Slightly past prime; There are still some mature red and dark fruit flavors on the palate, but they are slightly disjointed and faded with air

    September 27, 2013 - Mature black fruit aromas and flavors. Good spice in background. Slightly too firm for the level the fruit was advanced.

    August 14, 2013 - Mostly black fruit aromas with a bit of mushroom, braised meat and new oak spice. A bit more evolved on palate, just a touch too firm and structured for the flavor combination. Good now and likely to stay at this level for a while going forward.

    May 6, 2013 - Popped and poured. Slightly floral start with red and black cherry aromas along with plenty of earth and some meaty spice. Mostly black fruit on palate that comes across slightly more fresh than the nose. Good density, well textured, with an overall impression of a good Gevrey Villages level wine.
