    August 21, 2022 - Very nice had w 2009, more tannic then 2009 but still a nice wine.

    August 10, 2022 - Powerhouse. A bit tight and tannins still gripping the mouthfeel. loads of fruit, and definitely a well crafted wine with substance and power. IMHO this wine is not ready yet. I will try again in 3-5 years.

    August 4, 2022 - Decanted briefly. Wow. This Opus is singing now and it is so gratifying to have cellared these patiently and then taste this beauty. Just starting its tertiary phase, this is a sturdy, complex Opus still with gorgeous Napa fruit but also balanced and integrated earth, herbs, and acid. Delightful.

    June 10, 2022 - Dark brown, purple colour. Modest nose but complexity beginning to come out. First taste is a slightly sweet fruit burst - dates, immediately tannic, dry, licorice, earthy, smoke. Very long endless linger. Another great Opus

    June 1, 2022 - Black currant mid-palate, long finish, and still very primary. Unresolved tannins but great balance as usual, and a good life still ahead. Followed a 1989 Tignanello, and both were lovely wines. Is it superior to a well-researched 60-100 dollar Napa or Bordeaux? We wonder, but it would be interesting to try this next to a 2013 Le Pich or 2010 Mondavi Reserve. Next time will decant for a few hours before drinking. Paired with rack of lamb, w-dad at Nicola's in Cincinnati.
