    April 3, 2019 - I thought this was excellent after an hour of air, Liz thought the wine was solid but not spectacular. 91 is the average score. Ready to drink with a decant, but in my opinion, this will probably sail on for at least another decade or so if properly cellared.

    November 23, 2018 - I liked this bottle so much more than the previous bottle I recently had of the same vintage. It seemed much more balanced with no harshness, but plenty of fruit. It will be interesting to try the next bottle of this vintage.
