    December 7, 2019 - A big juicy gulp of ripe, sweet, dark cassis poured over salty rocks with a touch of herbs is found here from start to finish. Slightly rustic, with time, the finish, with all its blackberries and sweet cassis takes on a creamier texture. Perhaps this is not overly complex. But there is a wealth of ripe juicy fruit that tastes and feels great! So dig in if you have a bottle as this is a joy to drink today. 90 minutes in the decanter helped as well.

    December 5, 2019 - Classic Pauillac nose with cedar, graphite and earth. Some smoke as well. Plums and chocolate on the palate. Quite restrained. Tannins are resolved but present. Took some time to open up and come together.

    Had this 12 years ago, and it was shut down. Couldn't miss a chance to try the same wine several years later.

    November 29, 2019 - Beautiful nose full of all the elements of a great bdx. A bit soft on the palate and medium finish. Overall lovely wine.

    November 16, 2019 - Decanted from magnum for large group. Color- some brick at edge. Nose - tobacco and dark plums. Taste: Cab dominated blend with earthy cab flavors. Tasted a 1995 Leoville Barton Magnum after that blew this wine away. This GPL was a crowd pleaser- most folks were Cali wine freaks. Drink up.

    November 13, 2019 - Monthly Tasting Group HWS #143; Wines from the book "1001 wines you must try before you die" (By BS): In the bouquet dark berries, licorice, sweet spices and beautiful oak. Same on the palate, chocolate, vanilla, good toast, coffee, elegant and fresh acidity and round but still firm tannin. Beautiful in its maturity stage, but with certainly another 3 - 5+ years of future.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Grand Puy Lacoste) Tight out of the gates but with some coaxing a gorgeous nose of tar, blackberry, tobacco, currants, black cherries mineral and a touch of toasty oak. Very aromatically precise . . . Rich and decadent in the mouth with superconcentrated fruit . . . Firms up on the finish but has astounding length and brilliant delineation . . . Wow!!
