    March 15, 2016 - A Bunch of Great Burgs at St. Genevieve (St. Genevieve, Mpls, MN): Very dark red/purple color. PNP, drank 1 glass over an hour. Since I've had this for the third time now over the last 6 months, I won't bore you with details. I agree with Chablis28's evaluation as well. This started out in second gear and then gradually shifted into overdrive with the nose eventually exploding into that classic Margaux floral perfume. Gorgeous!

    March 15, 2016 - Jimmy btl tonight and outstanding like a previous btl six months ago, last fall. Great nose! Such beautiful silky rich fruit, tobacco and spice. And yet as concentrated as it is, its has that Margaux weightless balance . Loved it! Very happy to own a few of these and even happier to keep drinking Sioris btls :). This was PnP too! If you have a few don't hesitate to try one. This is still quite youthfully fresh but also drinking exceptionally well right now. 93+

    December 8, 2015 - MK's 20th Anniversary Dinner (Capitalle Grille, Mpls, MN): Very dark red/purple color. slow ox for 4 hours and double decanted for an hour; drank 2+ glasses over 2 hours. Another wonderful showing from this beauty. The nose stars here, with a great perfume of florals along with a bevy of ripe fruits - cassis, red berries, and then blueberry scents that are complimented by the mineral and mature oak. The palate is full bodied, nicely structured with textured tannins, zippy, mineral, a mix of black, blue and red fruits, pencil, earth and a long finish. This was a more youthful bottle and a bit of the reverse of the last bottle in which the palate surpassed what was still an excellent nose. 93+pts.

    (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.
