    December 17, 2019 - Still developing, it seems to me. But a satisfying bottle.

    November 25, 2019 - Opened and poured. Spongy cork. Dark deep coloring, full bodied deep amethyst. Nice pedigree and purity. Some tartness. Cherries, and reds predominate...no secondaries of note yet. Lush, smooth.

    November 3, 2019 - Nice wine. Not exactly my bag, but undoubtedly a heralded wine for a reason. And, this one consumed tonight with a special trip and little mini family reunion was RIGHT at the top of the drinking window. 15 yr post vintage and this one is ready to kick ass. Darker black fruits. Truffle. Figs. Tobacco. Full bodied wine. Integrated beautifully, soft tannins that have resolved. If you have these, now is the time to start drinking the 03s. In a really good spot.
