    February 12, 2020 - Vinturi aerated and decanted for 70 min. Dark red/purple. Pleasant nose of dark berries with hints of prunes and some smokiness. Smooth, medium bodied, much lighter than expected. Tannins restrained but the higher than typical acidity was a surprise and which severely muted blackberry and plum notes. Medium long plum finish provided only brief enjoyment. A simple and disappointing Beaucastel that doesn't seem to have the backbone to improve further.

    February 11, 2020 - Enjoyed at Maestro Vegas. Classic Beaucastel - delicious - blackberries, dark currants, light spice, some thyme showing through. Soft mouthfeel, medium body. Medium finish.

    January 13, 2020 - January birthdays (and porchetta) (Chicago, IL): I was seriously surprised how much I liked this bottle. It's definitely a big-boned wine with plenty of fruit and structure, but it's also fairly clean and despite the scale, there is still quite a bit of minerality and restraint to it. A bit of kirsch, licorice, and leather but all done without any high-toned alcohol notes, nor jammy over-the-top fruit. Colour me impressed by this -- I'm not generally a CdP fan.

    October 20, 2019 - Savory nose. Plum, blackberry, vanilla on the palette. Medium tannins. Sweet, pepper finish. Primary and modern, but enjoyable. Better in a few years.

    September 11, 2019 - A bit thin and uni-dimensional at this stage of evolution. I think this will improve with more time in the bottle.
