    January 25, 2020 - PnP. Almost opaque with slight bricking. Slight spices and wood on nose. Simple but pleasant body with some fine tannins at the front. Don’t see a lot of evolution happening with more bottle time.

    April 21, 2019 - My last bottle, kept open and sipped slowly for a week with no deterioration. Opaque purple, delicious, smoothly textured, very tasty red and black cherry,and mouth coating, with an excellent balance of acid and tannin. As fine as this 10 year old drinks now, could be fully enjoyed over another 4 years, with no need to drink up soon.

    September 4, 2016 - No need to wait on this one. In fact, best not to wait. Yum!

    August 31, 2016 - A strong candidate for the best Pierre Leon ever made. Very dark red. Deep black and red cherry aromas. Delicious, concentrated, smooth, and flowing, plus an added blueberry and black plum fruit. Supremely silky with wonderfully integrated tannin, and a nearly endless finish. Has magnificently evolved into the best the 2009 vintage has ever tasted, with nothing tired or prematurely oxidized.

    July 19, 2015 - In a great drinking window at this point. Well integrated fruit and soft finish.
