    September 28, 2019 - Fruit forward and smooth. Not as elegant as I expected. I believe it needs more age.

    July 22, 2019 - Really good stuff. Really fine grade tannins. Super smooth and not for those that prefer fruit forward.

    July 7, 2019 - Decanted for about 2 hours before taking it to a steak dinner. Wine had a muted nose which was confirmed on first taste. The wine seemed closed and unexpressive which I found disappointing. Texture was silky smooth and full-bodied. I believe another 2-3 years in the cellar will allow the wine to develop and become more expressive. My score might improve to a 96 then but right now I don't think the wine is worth the price.
