    August 5, 2020 - Medium red with blackberry, leather, oak, and herb notes. We did not decant, so the tannins were slightly stiff here. Finish is medium length and dry. This was stored since near release and seems like it still has at least another decade ahead with possible upside.

    July 25, 2020 - Decanted to room temperature about 30 min and tasted, Cellared since 2007. Enticing bouquet, lovely fruit, Kirsh, raspberry, smokey minerals, truffles, pleasant oaky notes. Certainly ready to drink But could last for a number of years.

    July 17, 2020 - In a good spot. Rich and dark but lighter than my last '04 (in 2012?). Nose of black olives and herbs, also a little beat meaty. Not fantastic but very enjoyable.

    June 13, 2020 - Tis has evolved quite bit since my last visit with it in 2008. A meaty and savory nose, with provencal herbs, leather, and dark berry fruits. Mid to full bodied and rich with a similar mix of savory meaty-mushroom notes, leather, iodine, black licorice, and more dark berry fruit. Overall good balance in a more savory than fruit driven CdP. Drinking at peak, and I doubt it will improve with further cellaring.
