    January 18, 2020 - PNP into Zalto Burgundy glass (“Flower” day): Pale ruby with fine deposits.

    Bordeaux equivalent. This has aged savoury Cabernet fruits. Superb power in this.

    93 points.

    November 24, 2019 - Dark ruby red color. Nose of cherries, cassis and saddle leather. Long full taste cherries, black berries, cassis and a hint of cedar on the edge. Drinking well with plenty of life left.

    November 2, 2019 - A sumptuous wine with no rough edges at all . Yes it’s past it’s “prime” but so am I . It’s deliciously full of flavors . I will drink the entire bottle tonight !

    August 24, 2019 - OrAnge bricking is evident. Loamy earth, damp forest floor and a bit of Brett. Dried cherries, dusty tannin which is starting to dry out but still very balanced structure for the fruit. Some mushroom and leather almost like a Rhone?. Long 15 seconds finish very vibrant on rear and mid palate. Mature but will hold. Reading the other comments on this site I wish I had tried this 10 years ago but c'est la vie.
