    December 20, 2021 - Popped and poured- ready to go with 20 min of air. Stellar wine that’s barely identifiable as new world. Has all the pencil shavings and graphite that brings you right to Bordeaux. The balance and finish are great. Certainly in its prime with a solid 5 years plus of good drinking. Revisit 2025

    November 29, 2020 - This bottle had seen better days. Cork disintegrated, tawny color, reduced oxidative nose.

    December 27, 2019 - 4 hour decant- not nearly as good as when tasted at the winery. Perhaps a slightly off bottle but nonetheless still a delight to drink. Compared to the 1997 Kronos that I drank last week, the 1997 was far superior. Hopefully my remaining 89’s are better. This is in its prime but no rush to drink.

    May 5, 2018 - Flavors of a spiced mulled wine with plenty of cinnamon, cloves, orange, and vanilla. Delicious and complex. $400 at winery.
