  • Outstanding wine in it's prime and drinks best after 1.5 hours in the decanter. Overall, tasting experience in line with my notes from last August. Great, fresh, bright red fruit, a supple, puckery character, with refined yet firm tannins on the finish. Delicate yet stubborn, graceful yet gritty, definitely 'old school' and I love it. Went great with a savory chicken stir-fry and rice. Drink now - 2021.

  • Drinking awesome after a 3-hour decant. Paired with filet, grilled potatoes, and mixed arugula salad. Dark, cloudy, crimson color with purple hues, throwing tons of sediment. Musty nose brings a burst of sharp, ripe raspberries, some strawberries, mocha, caramel, cherry menthol, sweet tobacco, and notes of mint and eucalyptus. The palate is medium-to-full, very supple and gritty, bringing ripe cherries, more raspberries, red hard candy, hints of blackberries, herbs, leather, milk chocolate, and ends with chocolate cherries, cinnamon, and rhubarb flowing into a smooth, delicate finish. Tannins fading but still firm. The acidity is still strong and potent, along with the red fruit. Drink now-2021.

  • Pleasantly surprised....excellent-outstanding. Still very fresh. Light bricking near the edges in addition to a clear rim, a little bit of cigar and smoke on the nose. Decanted, plenty of sediment. Palate is medium bodied and extremely smooth...most of the tannin has subsided, still a decent amount of cassis and dark fruit on the palate, as well as a touch of oak. Elegant, but still some depth. Exceeded expectations.
