    October 14, 2020 - Dark, Dark purple. Tightly wound nose of raisins, figs, menthol and plum. Wow! What an explosion of fruit on the front and mid-palate! Chocolate, cocoa, burnt orange(?), and a mouthful of garrigue!! Incredibly overripe, and a touch port-like. Intense, powerful, showy and delicious.

    September 28, 2020 - Opened an hour before drinking. Good fruit, a little earthy on the finish. But kept smoothing out the longer it was open. Interesting aroma and the earthy flavor gave way which made it more enjoyable

    September 27, 2020 - Thick, serious CdP with lots of layers. Notes of dried figs, candied cherrries, cigar, violets, bandaid, lots of stuff. The main weakness, common to many high-end CdPs, is low acidity. Despite the massive concentration and complexity, the wine tastes a little flat. Tannins are big but appropriate.

    This wine obviously can age for a long time. I think it is near peak, but probably still on the young side of the aging hill.

    September 19, 2020 - Dark purple in color. Big palate with some dark fruits and olives, earthiness, and woodlands. Smooth and balanced. Although I like more fruit, I thought this delicious.
