    January 4, 2019 - It was good but a bit disappointed. Well pitched acid and touch of vanilla but the fruit is a bit lacking compared to the amount of tannins and acid level. Should have no problem holding 5 years or so but no reason to hold. Drink now.

    December 31, 2018 - After 4 years my second bottle and again a disappointment. Harsh tannins. Will not melt I believe.

    December 18, 2018 - The fruit is darker and stronger than expected for a '99 with the secondary notes of vanilla, cedar, and mushroom just starting to develop. As it warms in the glass, the graphite characteristic disappears. Nicely resolved tannins and less than average acidity, but it all works well together. The only minor complaint is the finish is a little short in length.

    December 2, 2018 - Gorgeously correct paulliac. Intoxicating nose of raspberry leaf, smoke, cedar, pencil lead. Opens up after a few hours to be both bold and feminine. A silky, elegant entry with a refreshing mid palate full of sweet and savoury pleasure, this is terrific. This has realised its potential and is certainly at its peak. Eye rollingly delicious.

    November 6, 2018 - Tobacco and hints of menthol and plum and dark cherry. Undertones of cedar and dark chocolate add depth. The tannins are a bit grippy still with a medium-sized palate to support. The acidity is refreshing which carries the wine to an elegant finish.
