    January 2, 2023 - From magnum, this was virtually perfect. Fragrant, complex red and purple fruits, earth, and spices. Pixelated definition and a looong finish. In this format is at the height of its powers, as it kept growing in stature as it aired

    December 25, 2022 - This served as the replacement for a 1978 Petras that was corked for our 2022 Christmas dinner at Westdale cooked by Simon and Lana ...rack of lamb...for just the 4 of us. This was the Christmas Eve was recovering slowly from her broken femur at the hip she suffered in Nov at Disney. Simon and Lana cooking was a wonderful helpful and much appreciated gift. This wine was perfect in color and structure. It tasted hard when opened so I suspected it would have a long life. Upon checking critics suggest to drink it between 2019 and 2075!!!! I wish! Despite the overall 1982s being considered very drinkable early this should be considered in a decade! Hopefully that hardness will be unlike many of the 1975s which never really lost that quality.

    December 24, 2022 - This wine continues to drink beautifully. Concentrated fruit with notes of cassis, black raspberry, cedar with hint of spice and damp earth. It is perfectly balanced with a great mouthfeel and barely perceptible tannins. Paired with grilled dry aged ribeye steaks. A wonderful experience.

    (Pichon Lalande) A completely tertiary nose of grilled nuts and lots of truffles (white and black). Just crazy. There were also earth and mineral but those truffles were amazing. Great wine.
