March 1, 2021 - Drinking really well right now. Went great with a couple of T-Bones.
February 27, 2021 - Burly. Charred blackberry pie. Wood and smoke. Kinda slaps you around and then gives you a hug. It still may soften as it matures into old age as Don Melchor tends to do but, although perhaps not everyone’s taste, it is fun to drink now.
January 22, 2021 - Very good, time to drink up
September 12, 2020 - Wonderful. Very dark color. Not brown or thinning. Bright dark cherry! But over ripe. Has another 10 years left. Drinking well now. Won’t likely improve with more time !but who knows;)
September 5, 2020 - This wine has really come together. 4 years ago, I was not a fan. Drank tonight with NY strip off the grill, beautiful wine well integrated.
August 30, 2020 - This 14 years old bottle, unfortunately the last one of 2006, it is dark red, dense, round and balanced.
July 31, 2020 - Very seductive nose of cigarbox, tobacco, vanilla. Almost full bodied, dense, very complex, wih generously matured black fruit, cedar, liquorice, cocoa, plum, with lost of charming sweet ones in the background, this hedonist wine is perfect to be enjoyed now. Don't wait too long, because the fruit could shift to overmature aromas at some point.
July 29, 2020 - Complex smoky cabernet drinking quite well at present.
July 19, 2020 - Tobacco and leather. Dark friluit. Open the bottle 2 hours ahead and decanted 1 hours before comsuption. Excellent.
July 17, 2020 - Réduite/déviante
