    December 3, 2023 - Day after notes. An credible wine with decades left. Almost zero sediment. Ethereal notes of cedar, tobacco, eucalyptus and blackberry.
    Round in the mouth, exceptionally balanced with a finish that never stops. I have one bottle left and wish it was eleven.

    November 25, 2023 - Continuing to age in a positive direction the wine has added secondary nuances of leafy tobacco, cigar box, cedar, spice, and dried flowers to its core of blackberries and currants. Full-bodied, with a nice depth of flavor, and a structured, tannic backbone, giving it the ability to age for at least 2-3 more decades. Drink from 2023-2050.

    November 21, 2023 - This is unabashedly left bank with significant tobacco and bell pepper notes while also having plenty of ripe, rich plum fruit of the vintage. Early peak drinking. Seemed to continue integrate and smooth out with air over the course of dinner.

    November 21, 2023 - Celebrating K (Chicago, IL): For an estate I've always found a hair towards the rustic side, this was quite fruit forward on the palate, despite a distinct and intense pyrazine nose. Kind of a weird dichotomy there. Tannins feel pretty resolved at this point, and the softer 2000 vintage makes this feel approachable already.
