    September 7, 2019 - This wine is progressing nicely. I would have guessed this wine dead based on style and age. Full and rich wine that marries ripe fruit and oak structure in harmony. Not profound nor complex, but a good mouthful with grilled dishes. Finish falls short but that is nitpicking. (88)

    August 31, 2019 - Medium garnet in color. Medium intensity nose. Notes of black fruits, some leather and soil as well. Dry on the palate. Medium acid, tannin, alcohol and intensity on the palate. All seem in balance. Med - intensity on the palate. Finish is shorter than I expected. Fully mature but still in very good shape. This should linger in this stage for a handful of years.

    July 2, 2019 - Enjoyable and balance and ready to drink. Fruit, tannins are moderate but youthful. A real pleasure.

    May 5, 2019 - Great wine after an hour in the decanter. Seems like it could remain in this state for a while. Nice fruit and the usual earthy aromatics that make mature BDX so great.

    February 10, 2019 - The last bottle I had (2 years ago) was all wood, and zero wine. Oddly enough this bottle is lots of wine and a little wood. Dark cassis and plum fruit is supplemented with hints of spice, vanilla and cedar. There is still a good bit of tannin, but it’s not dominating the fruit. This is a surprising comeback for a modern right bank value wine. I have two left, and will get to them when I get to them.
