    June 22, 2019 - Decanted for 30 minutes before serving - should really have been 3+ hours. In the glass, very dark opaque red, nearly black. On the nose, muted currants and oak. On the palate, initially holding back - very little fruit, perhaps a hint of cedar. As the evening progressed, this began to show signs of life, with currants, cedar, tobacco, and plums all making appearance. The last glass was the best, and even then it was still getting better. Give this a few more years before opening one...

    May 18, 2019 - This bottle seemed a little off - tart in an unpleasant way. Opened three hours before dinner. Threw a lot of fine sediment. Tobacco, some ripe dark fruit, firm acidity. Lengthy finish.

    April 24, 2019 - Very nice bottle of Bordeaux, but I think we may have drunk a little too early. Opened with Easter dinner and tannins were definitely still present, though not off-putting. Had the rest of the bottle tonight (Wednesday) and it was rounder all the way around.

    March 30, 2019 - Much more integrated than last bottle (notes on 6/22/13) but that bottle had much more complexity in both nose and palate. Ultimately it’s a push in score. Last bottle and good time to drink up.
