    August 21, 2019 - I got in on this one towards the finish. Served blind. My guess was northern Rhone Syrah as it seemed to have a hotter type of character to it with a little bit of savory notes on the nose and entry. The middle of this Wayne developed a hint of herbaceous nest, tobacco, hint of mushroom and starting to get a little bit of that brett influence. Finished with more of a medium-bodied character. Not really a whole lot of sweet fruit going on here.... This one was a little bit dark and dank. I do not believe this wine is going to get any better in the bottle although it's good cellaring there's probably five to seven more years left.

    July 5, 2019 - A remarkable wine that needs to have a couple hour decant and remains vibrant. Old world nose, more subtle than overpowering. Dark red hues. After a couple of hours, becomes a full bodied incredibly smooth wine with just the right amount of dark red and blue fruit. Pairs very well with food. Above average finish. May need to buy the '18 futures.

    January 13, 2019 - A Survey of Pessac-Léognan (Skokie, IL): Served double blind. Fairly restrained nose, with a good balance of fruit and dusty, earthy notes here. The palate is a bit taut and seems fairly lean, with some more red-fruited inflections. Good dusty tones on the palate; just a tad too young with the tannins not yet resolved. My 2nd, group's 3rd.

    May 2, 2018 - Matt's Big 5-0 Birthday Bash (Heirloom, St.Paul, MN): Very dark red color. If I remember we got this on a decanter at the restaurant for an hour or so. I like this, it is young, but it's drinking pretty well. Medium plus to full bodied and well layered, there's a good mix of red and black fruits, firm but well rounded tannins, graphite, and oak tones on a medium plus finish.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Chateau Bahans Haut Brion) This was shockingly open with classic Graves on the nose. Weedy tobacco, tar, leather, dark berries and mineral. Sappy and full of fruit in the mouth with an excellent finish. Even more open on day 2 with more sap and density. If anybody has these crack one open as it is singing.
