    July 15, 2022 - Still epic. Just starting to enter a beautiful drinking phase. Tannins are starting to resolve and everything tastes so pure and delicious. I knocked it down one point from my previous note because the nose was a little more muted than before, but I suspect it may be due to the stemware. Advice… don’t be like me, drink this wine with the finest stemware. It deserves it.

    June 12, 2022 - Saw the "not ready" notes but couldn't wait longer. What a mistake. great backbone, lots of flavor elements and I see how this will be awesome in 5-10 years but it is tight and too tanic now. Gave it 92 because of potential but I feel it will be 96 or better in 2030. Kicking myself for openning but glad I have plenty left.

    March 6, 2022 - Was curious to try this but should have waited another 5+ years. Plenty of lovely flavors developing, but the tannins are still too firm and sharp.

    March 5, 2022 - Much better than my last note. Wonder if Coravin has an impact if you don't drink quickly. Big, good flavors, long finish, still big tannins. Will get better for a while.
