    August 31, 2019 - Darker garnet color. Nose of both dried and ripe fruit, leather, scintillating floral notes, earth. Satin-textured layers of earth, dried red plum, vibrant bright cherry, and bits of tar on the palate. Firm, dusty but reigned-in tannin and excellent acidity. Long finish of red fruit echoing in waves, with grip and depth. Pleasure to drink this wine.

    July 22, 2019 - I'm not giving this a numerical rating as the bottle was off. It tasted old and flabby (unlike my previous bottles of this, and unlike other recent notes). But it's probably time to drink up.
