    March 9, 2018 - A good drink, especially at the price. Excellent fruit quality, still on the black fruit side, but 2003 was a vintage where the Bordelais were allowed to acidify, and I think that is more than evident in this wine in terms of what I would say is an odd imbalance. The fruit is excellent, but there is an odd acidic quality that dominates the finish. Acidification is an art, and maybe this estate didn't quite get it right this time. That said, I will have no problem drinking the rest of these bottles.

    September 11, 2017 - Much better bottle than the last. Full bodied, fruit-forward, well-integrated tannins. Touch of spice, menthol and smoke. Mature. Drink over next 5 years.

    February 25, 2016 - Lavender aromas with flavors of pencil lead and fig with a deft balance between modern and claret tendencies.
