    July 5, 2017 - 18c; no decant; dusty ruby red; floral nose, mint, leather and barn and pinks; nice grip, viscous mouthfeel, bright tannins; currants, raspberries, cherries; 18.

    June 18, 2017 - Good fill and cork came out with a good "plop", but this bottle was very slightly acetic. Otherwise quite nice, middle-weight with refined tannins, but the vinergary aspect marred this just enough to knock it down a notch.

    May 14, 2017 - Pretty darn good right out of the bottle and fully mature. Should pair great with our tenderloin tonight. Smooth, no rough edges and a little earthy stink on the nose.

    April 29, 2017 - Dinner at Margaux's Table (Margaux's Table, White Bear Lake, MN): Very dark red/purple color. Slow-O for 3 hours, drank 1+ glass over an hour. Very pretty nose right from the start, with a gorgeous perfume of potpourri, dried flowers, spices, and dried cedar, more red fruits, cherry with red berries. The palate has nice fruit, the ripeness of the vintage showing, black cherry, red cherry, and more subtle cassis notes. Medium full bodied with a nice texture, tannins that are round, silky, and melding well. A very nicely balanced wine showing well. This too got better over the hour, but it really was firing from the start.

    April 10, 2017 - Cellared since release, perfect cork and fill. Dark red, minimal lightening at rim. Forward, expressive nose of cassis, leather, earth. Medium body, ripe red fruits and some complexity on the palate, well balanced, integrated tannins, medium finish. Has reached its plateau and will likely remain there for at least a decade. Room for some fruit/complexity trade off in the future, a positive if you like that. Excellent to outstanding.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Prieure-Lichine) A great showing for this wine and I have not really loved this stuff in the past. Violets, minerals, chocolate, exotic spices . . . maybe clove? Deep nose . . not high-toned but subtly penetrating. Peppery palate with a swath of dense dark berried fruit. Long and grippy but the fruit is there till the end. Fantastic.
