    May 31, 2021 - 88, at best. Something is off the rails. This has been one of the best values in my inventory. A bottle consumed 2-3 months ago was terrific, like prior bottles. This one was way off from that experience. I do have 2022 down as the back end year for the drink window, but it is not likely that this wine could have gone south this quick. I have two or three bottles left. I hope this was a one off experience.

    March 18, 2021 - This has consistently been a very good wine......producing an experience well beyond its price point. It is drinking well right now, but I have 2022 down as the last year of my drink window. I think that timing is still correct.

    June 22, 2020 - I seem to be having a better experience with this wine than is the case with others. This was the best bottle yet. Last year I sensed it might be tiring. I still think that is the case. So, will drink up on this one. It started out as a good value.....but evolved into a great value.

    December 31, 2019 - Tasted with mr_mando: Nose with some fruit, not intensive, on palate nice tannins, acidity, some fruit. Price/benefit excellent, but far from 93 points by Parker.
