    January 31, 2019 - Capsule and cork showed signs of mild seepage. On PnP, the wine was very shut down, other than pretty astringent acidity. Recorked, put in the fridge, revisited on night 2: starting to open and show signs of dark cherry and cola on the palate. Vacu-vinned, put back in the fridge, and forgot about it for a couple of more days. On night five, it was drinking nicely, with a decent nose of fruit and fairly balanced on the palate. Not sure that it was worth it, but it performed better than expected, given others' notes. Paired nicely with homemade ratatouille.

    October 31, 2018 - Strange and unbalanced wine. Hot and spicy nose, finishes rather bitter. Avoid.

    September 24, 2018 - Saturated cork and corrosion on the capsule - it looked like it was 40 years old.
    Light ruby color with a nice glimmer to it and some tiny specks of particulate that should be decanted and strained. The wine itself is fine and sound but drinking like it’s fully mature, I’m sure in no small part due to the closure issue. I guess I was lucky because the bouquet and palate were really quite nice, though it should probably deliver a bit more breadth for this pedigree and certainly for the price. 3+11+17+8= 89

    February 28, 2018 - Last of 5 bottles, and alas, a drinkable one. Mild-moderate Burg funk on nose, middle weight with some sweet creamy cola dark cherry and funk, not terribly complex. Not a great bottle but it is at least drinkable. Sad result for this wine.

    February 28, 2018 - Bottle #4 of 5. Moldy cork, off aromas, palate devoid of any fruit or character, only a musty moldy element, clearly flawed.
