July 2, 2019 - Very dark fruit, rich, well balanced, full bodied, luxurious and well-dosed wood.
June 24, 2019 - Complex, some smoke, wood, chicory, a little vanilla, dark fruit, super long and balanced, still has some years to go
June 20, 2019 - Still a pleasure to drink. Ruby purple color showing little sign of age. Dark berries, vanilla and sweet coconut from american oak. Long after taste, good acidity, but not so much tannin left. A very nice wine, but perhaps a little simple and sweet. Improved over the evening though where it gained more structure, so perhaps the best is yet to come.
January 13, 2019 - I thought it was over the hill and flabby but what a difference an hours makes in the decanter. Became really tight with a strong tannic finish in a good way. Extra point for being so reasonably priced.
November 3, 2018 - Decanted for 30 minutes and paired with grilled burgers.
Dark red / black in the glass. Not showing it's age. Big nose- black licorice, blackberry, leather and blueberry. Similar flavor profile on palate. Full body, medium+ acidity, medium tannins and a very long finish. Served near cellar temperature so I didn't think this was out of balance despite the wine's heft. This has aged extremely well and I really enjoyed. 93-94 range.
October 21, 2018 - Decanted 2 hours. Ready to drink but no hurry this has many years left. Very good wine. 92 pts
June 16, 2018 - Took to Mateo in Durham. Drank with a wide variety of tapas. Maturing nicely, dark fruit balanced with supporting acid and tannins. These are consistent from year to year. Really nice food wine.
June 16, 2018 - Chocolate, dark cherry, coffee. Tannins are still there for sure. Modern. 2020-2030+
June 14, 2018 - UWS; A mixed set of wines (@ JB): Sweet herbs and ripe red and black berries. Some autumn and rustic impressions, chocolate, fresh acidity and round tannin. Young maturity stage and a beautiful wine.
June 2, 2018 - Grosse puissance mais bel équilibre général.
Grenat très foncé, beaucoup de fruits au nez, épices douces, parfumé, très réussi.
Belle structure, varié et belle complexité, trame acide.
