    May 17, 2020 - Very elegant cassis and some tertiary notes with mushrooms.
    Elegant mouthfeel, soft with almost resolved tannin
    Drinks beautifully now. Great balance

    May 10, 2020 - Graphite nose is there, currant, touch of tobacco. Better in the decanter for a while.

    April 16, 2020 - Accessed now and in January with Coravin. I’m not normally drinking Bordeaux blends but this was nice. Not so nice that I would pay what the 2016 vintage cost here in Sweden (about 60 USD) but nice enough. Wouldn’t have called this as California, obviously a cooles vintage would do that. Graphite, black currant, a little bit of bell pepper but not much, some tobacco and peppercorn. Decent length, quite resolved tannins but it can definitely rest for a while still. Food friendly or should I say steak friendly.

    April 15, 2020 - Good wine. Structure fully resolved and American oak fully integrated. Easy to drink and a fun wine with food but not overly complex. Showing great ridge balance
