    May 21, 2019 - Drank at BLT celebrating my sons 16th birthday who also is a 2003 vintage. We’ve already drunk the 6 pack of Phelan-Segur at his prior birthdays. (which we enjoyed very much)

    I am glad to say that my previous bottle was a fluke. This was beautiful. The color is mesmerizingly clear and nuanced despite handling in the (taxi) cab on the way to dinner. It is still young with good structure and acid. The fruit is ripe but not jammy. The blackberry, currant and plum flavors work in concert but have not melded. The oak provides a nice shading but is not intrusive. I think it has room to develop and plan to hold the remaining bottles for my sons 18th, 21st and 25th birthdays.

    It was a budgetary stretch at the time but I am very pleased to have laid down good Bordeaux and Port upon the birth of each child.
