    August 17, 2019 - Very good bottle. Drinking at peak now. Compelling with a long satisfying finish. Sadly this is my last bottle.

    May 31, 2019 - Better showing. Decanted for 1.5 hours and nicely mature wine with still good fruit and mostly soft tannins....solid wine

    May 12, 2019 - Darker garnet. Nose of red currant, blackberry, fine soil, floral notes, cedar, stone. Wide open layers of red currant, plum, beef blood, earth, and green leaf on the palate. One can definite taste the Cabernet franc influence - which is a good thing. Hedonistic and a bit undisciplined but ultimately quite enjoyable. Great with lamb loin.

    April 24, 2019 - As per previous notes, it is ready to drink, but seemed a little tighter this time out. It only had an hour in the decanter, and I would recommend 3 hours to fully enjoy it.

    April 18, 2019 - Fine Wines SG - “Judgement of Paris” Bordeaux Blend Dinner (The Communal Bistro Delicacy - CBD): Intense and powerful, with blackberry, cassis, peat, pencil shavings. Highly tannic, which contributed to its huge structure. Great!
