    October 9, 2021 - Much better than when I tasted almost 2 years ago, and got better after 2 hours. Nice dark/red fruit balance and acidity. Chocolate, tobacco and vanilla. Tannins are integrated, several more years ...

    August 29, 2021 - Decanted for an hour. Dense, dark and delicious. Combines old world class with new world power; a bit more complexity would push it into 95+ territory. Outstanding QPR.

    July 25, 2021 - Just delicious and so well balanced. Only needs 30 min to open up. Great fresh and delicious, well rounded. Not hugely complex but who cares when it’s this well balanced. Probably at peak but no rush as a decade of life left.

    July 15, 2021 - Extremely dark purple color, almost opaque. Lots of dark black fruit. Moderate tannin structure. Maybe 5-8 good years left, but why wait? Very nice wine.

    June 13, 2021 - Paid $71. Solid Bordeaux - smooth and full bodied. But I must be used to younger wines (2016s), this bottle tasted old. I like Cardinale alot, but have usually had them much younger.
