    August 17, 2019 - This bottle is progressing nicely in the cellar. It's great now but will be better with more aging.

    August 8, 2019 - Nice Ruby color and flavors of cherry and mineral. It opened nicely over an hour but wish we waited a little longer to open up or decant longer. Paired very well with prosciutto and mozzarella appetizer.

    July 2, 2019 - Je suis sévère, mais je l’ai trouvé ordinaire, alors....
    Pas beaucoup d’intérêt ici, fruit rouge, cerise surette. Je suis capable de prendre des vins avec une bonne acidité, mais ici c’est déséquilibré. La bouche est plus agréable le lendemain, mais ne gagne pas suffisamment de profondeur pour scorer plus haut.

    June 4, 2019 - not as good as my last bottle last year, not sure if its slipping or because it was purchased at a different location
