    February 8, 2020 - Wine was in perfect, youthful shape. Color excellent, minor sediment. Cork very sound. Absolutely delicious. Long life ahead. Maybe best 89 I've had.

    February 7, 2020 - Wines for the Acker Merrall Bicentennial Auction (The Pool - New York NY): Small glass, brief note. Tasted just after 1990, this is much harder and more tannic, but also showing lots of powerful black fruit. I definitely prefer the 1990 for now AND the future.

    December 31, 2019 - I don't think this was sound. The cork was soaked and very soft. Nose was very muted. Fruit somewhat sour.

    December 18, 2019 - It is hard to say why some bottles from the same case are so much better than their brothers or sisters. But it does happen. This example is the best 89 I've tasted in years. Not decanted, the nose shot out its roses, truffle, smoke, licorice, cocoa and ripe plums once the cork left the bottle. Medium-bodied, silky, elegant, fresh, sexy and impossible to stop drinking, this is what mature Pomerol is all about! Shared with a bestie for life, the memory will linger.
