    August 22, 2014 - Beautiful deep purple without a sign of age. Looks way young. Nose starts slow but hits hard with plum, blackberry and some black licorice. Soft mouth. Palate has nice fruit. Long finish with good acidity (food friendly), dark fruit and dark cocoa. Balanced. Liked it a lot but I thought it lacked some secondaries and finished a tiny bit hot for a higher score. Young. 2014-2025?

    June 26, 2014 - Was popped and poured and that was a shame because this wine needed air.
    It seemed to have all the elements there for a nice wine but honestly didn't show well against a Grand Ciel that had been open and decanted for 8 hours and was hitting on all cylinders.

    March 20, 2014 - Bonham's and Butterfield Pre-auction tasting (San Francisco, CA): Modern style, ripe red fruit nose; overly alcoholic on the palate. Unbalanced. 82

    March 14, 2014 - Wow! A beauty. Classical wine in a modern cover. (Or the other way round?) The bouquet shows exclusive smoky oak with beautifully ripe cassis and other dark forest fruits and some smoke. On the palate beautiful dark forest fruits as well, exclusive oak again, sweet spices as well as a beautiful balance between acidity and sweetness. Soft and round tannin with a beautiful bite. Good freshness and an enormous length. Truly great wine in its very early maturity stage now and it can last easily for another decade and more. So 2025+ The score for tonight was 98+
