    October 16, 2017 - Color of red/orange which faded to red over time. Double decanted due to cork disintegrating and needing to be filtered out, let sit for ~3.5 hours, drank over an hour. Very phenolic nose, slight must, very pleasant, also had scents of rose and cherry. Flavors similar to nose, very phenolic up front, which resolved into cassis and cherry, then into leather after about a minute. Excellently balanced bottle of wine, low acid, medium-full body, mild-moderate tannins.

    October 6, 2017 - At the Lafite Vertical Dinner, Amuse Bouche Hong Kong - This was paired with the 1989 and the 2000. The 2000 kicked them both into touch with both the 1989 and 1990 disappointingly flat and perhaps a little more evolved than you'd expect from a First Growth.

    October 6, 2017 - NM Lafite. Softened compared to 2000 with some nuttiness aromatically, but felt light and astringent. Seen better showings.

    September 14, 2017 - It's hit higher highs for me in the past, didn't really stand out this evening. From Mag.
