    March 17, 2019 - Drinking like a beautiful middle aged St Estephe with great depth and complexity through the palate and nice liveliness.

    March 3, 2019 - Perfect bottle. 3 hour decant. Very silky and fine with classic flavors of dark fruits, tar and graphite minerals. Really savory at this point wiy a medium body and a beautiful finish with notes of dark earth and coal dust. A beautiful wine for drinking now but probably more complexity to come as the tertiaries develop further. 94+
