    February 16, 2020 - Last of 5 bottles. Pop & pour. Concerned with my '09 CDPs as some (not this bottle) have aged quicker than I expected.

    Medium red color with a clear meniscus. Nice nose - garrigue, raspberry, cherry & fig. Similar flavor profile on palate, medium+ body, medium+ acidity, integrated tannins and long finish. Very nice. 92+/-

    February 3, 2020 - This bottle was not showing well...had a strange sort of raisiny cooked element on the nose that I couldn't get over.

    February 1, 2020 - Solid CdP. Lush fruit with some mature elements. Nice elegant expression with interwoven provincial spice and sandalwood notes. This vintage is a little more forward than some, maybe earlier to maturity. Minimal heat. Will continue to evolve, not sure it will improve. Really long powerful finish.
