    October 18, 2020 - The best showing/tasting since my initial tasting of this vintage in 2015. Opened up nicely after 1.5-2 hours of decanting. Layers of notes on both palate and nose. Red fruit, clay, graphite, and Indian spices with clove dominate, all with a delightful and energetic minerality streak.

    September 19, 2020 - Corison after Ribcap into dark chocolate...good all around.

    This was fast tracked in my tertiary storage. Meaning, it is more advanced than if I had stored it my EuroCave’s.

    It is well resolved. Yet, still has plenty of life.

    Beautiful, bright, lush, ripe fruits of; blackberries, black raspberries; black cherries, strawberries, plum, raspberries with cherries over the top. Soft limestone minerals, tarry notes, expresso roast, underbrush, soft leather, cedar to wood shavings, moist clay, understated baking spices; clove, nutmeg, cinnamon & vanillin, dark spice with well pronounced heat, mocha, caramel, hints of tree sap/bark, sage, Provenance herbs, brilliant florals of; purple, violets & soft lavender. The acidity is near perfect. The finish is elegant with perfect polish and persists softly.

    February 24, 2020 - Day one: Thin and a bit dilute dilute. What's going on? A bad year or is my palate getting jaded?

    Day two: Cathy, how can I have doubted you. This is a symphony in a glass from the maestro of cabernet. Gorgeous concentration while remaining fresh and cool - this house's trademark. A masterpiece. Delicious now but many, many years ahead.

    December 27, 2019 - A Napa-ish BDX stalwart? A BDX-ish Napa beauty? Take your pick. Definitely the best of both worlds. Crushed white flowers, iron, charcoal, woody notes, nice faint mineral note, tart cherries, touch of blackberry. Tannins and oak integrated, but plenty of acid left for this to further develop 10+ years. I think it’s best life is many years ahead. 92 for now 94-95 with 7-10 years in the cellar.
