    November 22, 2019 - A very good showing here on the young side on quick double decant and straight consumption. Quite Pomerol like, pronounced sweet truffle wafting from the glass. A good sweetness of fruit and round tannins. A treat with the ragout pasta. It sort of fell apart a bit in the glass (a bit left for half an hour) strangely though. Very primary today but drinking already in its youthful exuberance.

    June 30, 2019 - It's difficult to reconcile the recent notes here to what I experienced tonight. A friend brought this, (double decanted) to a restaurant and had it up against a BC Cab Sav of all things, with prime rib.
    The nose was quite muted, at least for some time and the mouthfeel was good with juicy acidity and bright red fruit, like barely ripe cherry. I was thinking it would be something quite different and although it was actually getting better, which makes me think it either wasn't ready to drink, or didn't have nearly enough air, it didn't measure up to the cab sav. I'm tempted to say this probably wasn't fair and that had we tried this again tomorrow or the next day, it may have been a beauty. I've had sublime Super Tuscans and I can't help but think something's amiss here. When I see a date like 2033, I think this might have been in a dumb phase.

    June 15, 2019 - Decanted for an hour, dark fruits, classic Cabernet nose, a powerful rich voluptuous wine, poised & balanced, this will be very good in time

    June 12, 2019 - From half bottle. Dark currant, cassis, violets, oak and herbs. Modern in style but in a good way. Lush and round on the palate but balanced at the same time. Very enjoyable. 92-93
