    July 17, 2021 - Pnp. Very fragrant. Red and black fruits, some spice and earth notes. Smooth and supple. Medium length finish with diminished tannins.

    August 16, 2020 - Shared this wine last night to rave reviews. It is drinking beautifully! Most of the experts who rated this wine early on did not see the drinking window going this long. They were wrong. It's amazing now and has plenty of life left. Silky mouth feel, with long finish.......plenty of fruit with enjoyable savory notes!. We should have tried the extended age along with the regular 010 for comparison. Might do that tonight!

    April 11, 2019 - This is a feisty wine. It's age gives it smoothness and suppleness, but it has plenty of structure and acidity left to give it many more years of life. The petit verdot really comes across in the nose and the syrah owns the mouth-feel.

    December 15, 2018 - A bit pruney, but still very tasty. Last one, but I am not sure this will be improving with any more age.

    May 13, 2017 - Decanted at restaurant, finished that night at home. Tight initially, opening as the night went on. A lot of fruit. Nice aromatics, definitely get the dark Bordeaux influence there from the Cab and Petit Verdot. Smooth delivery. Lengthy finish. Nice.
