    September 2, 2020 - WIML91

    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about 3 hours.

    Garnet color in the glass, just a little bit dusty looking. Nose of barnyard, rusty iron, black berries and black cherries. Flavors of raspberries, red berries and red cherries. Tart acidity, resolved tannin, medium to full bodied. Drink now.

    July 5, 2020 - Still quite structured, some plum fruit, a little cedar and graphite,slightly smoky heat on the finish but overall enjoyable drinking right now.

    July 4, 2020 - Wednesday Wine Education #2; 7/1/2020-7/8/2020 (Grapes & Grains, Temecula, CA): Waited too long, over-the-hill. The nose was all over-ripe prune and raisin. Tasted flat. Could have been cooked, could have been oxidized. For a 20-year-old cork, there was hardly any staining and the cork was removed without difficulty.

    June 5, 2020 - this was the lowest-rated and most inexpensive wine of the Bordeaux line-up. but we all thought it deserved better; good cassis, spice, leather cigar leaf goings on bouquet-wise and outstanding balance of everything, refreshing, not heavy and impressive on the palate.

    May 8, 2020 - Perfectly mature, charming Saint Emilion right in its drinking window. Nose of cedar, caramel, liquorice, plum, ripe dark berries, port. Medium bodied, well structured, sensual on the palate, with chocolate, licorice, tobacco, light roast aromas and a delicate phenolic finish. To be enjoyed now and over the next 3-5 years. Don't forget to decant!

    (Chateau Faugères St Emilion) A very open and expressive nose here, quite exotic, and rich with spiced, plummy fruit. It has a very attractive palate also, soft at the entry and then showing more structure towards the end. Good acidity, overall this has an appealing composition. A lot of substance here. This needs time, between two and five years at least.
