    January 21, 2020 - First bottle consumed. Acquired on release. Very light bricking in the glass. Presents pleasant aromatics with clove, mint, cassis, and incense. On the palate this starts out with bright cherry followed rapidly by dusty tannins and fresh but unobtrusive acidity, with smoked cherry and alder notes following before the wine changes course to a chalky, anise, and mineral accented conclusion. Good length that is subtle but not understated. Very lovely now with the weight to hold in the cellar. Drink now through 2030.

    January 8, 2020 - Seductive aromas of flowers, underbrush, cedar, and black olives. Sweet blueberry shows on the palate. I like the balance between fruit and vegetation. There is some unexpressed weight, and tannins are a bit strong. This wine is still on the rise and probably won't reach its peak for another five years.

    January 7, 2020 - Cassis, cranberry, cedar, juniper, desert rocks and vanilla. Medium body, medium-high acidity, medium plus tannins. Interesting, but just too dry for my taste, even after aerating and 2 hours with food.

    January 6, 2020 - Drinking beautifully now (from 375). Fresh delicious classic Bordeaux fruit structure, clean and well balanced with good depth and length. Open now but no hurry.
