    February 16, 2019 - This needs time but has a lot of potential. Far better than the unstructured 2008 paleo

    December 19, 2018 - Beautiful dark fruits and floral notes in the nose.
    Black cherries, plum, mocha and some smoked aromas on the palate. Very complex body with great structure and stiff tannins - not too heavy, just perfect.
    It is aged for 14 month in French barriques.
    It is just my second vintage of this wine after trying the 2009 a few years ago. I rated the 2009 with 91 points but the 2010 is even better! It is perfect now but will gain complexity over the next couple years and will be perfect around 2021.
    Great price tag for this quality too in my opinion. If you see it in a restaurant or a wine store give it a try! Just 2,200 cases produced in 2010.

    December 10, 2018 - One more enthusiastic note on this beauty, which I seem to find with pleasing regularity on restaurant wine lists. This bottle added some smoky depth to the crunchy, textured, dark red fruit, green pepper, graphite and slate notes I've previously highlighted. Give it a hard decant, or (if you have the time) let it breathe for 3-4 hours.

    November 10, 2018 - A year since my last bottle, this is now in prime form, especially after an hour+ decant. A rounded and open wine, with a floral nose giving way to crunchy, textured, dark red fruit along with some bell pepper, graphite and slate. As I wrote one year ago, this is a high energy, vibrant wine. Still superb.

    November 10, 2018 - A Matter of Taste: New York (The Conrad NY | Del Posto): Very fruity and a bit more intense than the Galatrona we had alongside it. This was interesting and well done.
