    May 15, 2022 - Red cherry, raspberries, earthy, mineral, spice, nice structure and intensity, long finish

    February 13, 2021 - Upon opening this was a bit tight on the nose and palate. Nose remained somewhat restrained but showed game, forest and spice. The palate really rounded out over the evening and went from being somewhat tight and perhaps even astringent to a very lovely wine of depth and sweet (in a good way) fruit. Powerful, but lovely balance. Only going up from here - probably best from 2025 on.

    May 8, 2019 - Domaine Michel Lafarge Vertical Tasting (E&R Wine Shop, Portland OR): Rich, round and sweet notes on the thickly fruited nose. Still, showing a ton of elegance and depth on the nose. Much more powerful and deep than the 2014 or 2013 on the nose. Gorgeous palate entry, showing very nice balance. Lovely integrated of fruit and structure here too. Very pretty stuff. Killer dial up and pretty integration of fruit and all structural components on the finish, as well. Very intense and interesting.
