  • Still in excellent condition. Mainly aromas of wild berries. Velvety texture and quite dense. Full bodied wine. It lacks a bit of freshness.

  • My Grade: VG+ . Needed about 90 minutes of air to come on song. Color: opaque mauve in the glass, somewhat watery rim. Nose: cherry, cassis, prominent licorice, earth and slight herbal notes on the nose. Lively and youthful on the palate, tart cherries and blackberries, burnt toast and dark chocolate, mid-palate doesn't quite hold up and gets a bit too plummy and jammy, finish is tart and a bit thin, but this is still very satisfying. Sits between classic, old-school and New World style Bordeaux.

  • Opened and decanted 1.5 hours ahead of seared pork cutlets and baked garlic potatoes. Dark, cloudy Crimson color. Floral nose brings whiffs of fresh cherries, strawberries, red lavender oil, and fresh cut cedar wood. The palate is full, square, textured, and extracted, bringing blackberries, black currant, creme de cassis, chocolate cherries, caramel mocha, musty horse saddle, wild herbs, dried tobacco, and lingering notes of juicy strawberry compote into the finish, which has delicate tannins, strong acidity, but unintegrated oak. Overall, seems the oak and acidity are not quite calibrated yet, especially in the finish where there is a slight bite. Entering drinking window but should be best 2017-2030.
