    March 15, 2021 - This bottle was just rocking my world. Soft and slightly savory tomato leaf notes, then herbs and potpourri and cherry fruits. Palate was totally supple and smooth but not lacking for freshness. Outstanding to drink now. Don't wait any longer.

    August 18, 2020 - Deliciously deep and dark; strongly evokes Nuit St. Georges at this latter stage in its life. Drink or hold.

    August 7, 2020 - Owned since release. Dark red color with just a hint of bricking at the edges. Cool red and blue fruit jam with a touch of blood orange jumps out of the glass. In the background there is also a touch of menthol. Still lots of fruit on the attack surrounded by a minty pine nut shell. Wine is light on the pallet with a touch of noticeable alcohol on the finish. If it were not for that, this wine would be other worldly. Still, it remains admirable in its own right and is drinking well.

    June 29, 2020 - Dark red with orange edge.
    Dark, red fruit almost baked nose (dissipated with time) . Liqueur-like concentration. Although there is acid enough, this is a little cloying. Still vigorous but of a style that I dont prefer.
