    August 31, 2014 - Faded. not bad, but no 'punch' left in it. A little flat, but still enjoyable.

    December 28, 2013 - Deb bought this in Pomerol in 1997, but this bottle did not hold up. Rather thin black fruit, little tannin, not much of a presence in the mouth, and not much reason to drink it. Disappointing, but perhaps bottles that had been stored better will still show well.

    February 10, 2013 - Showing really nice, youthful... Loads of herbal, chocolate, espresso, black olive notes. Nice developing Pomerol

    February 9, 2013 - Showing some age in the colour with a distinct mahognay band at the rim, set against a claret core.
    Enticing nose, with leafy blackcurrant richly decorated with meaty/gravy aromas.
    Likewise on the palate, there's meatiness but allied to some still quite pure fruit (reminiscent of cherry with a hint of raspberry) that suggests cab franc, but I'm not sure if there is much of that in the blend. No tannins to speak of and acidity supports without being noticed.
    Really good, and no reason not to drink up.

    January 17, 2013 - Took to dinner at AOC in the West Village and paired with a NY Strip.
    Classic Bordeaux both on the nose and on the palate. Tannins resolved, decent acidity with well developed secondary flavours. A very wine
