    February 15, 2019 - Cassis. Smoke. Umami. Leather. Pretty good. Will hold for some time for properly stored bottles.

  • Christo P. Ney Likes this wine: 89 points

    January 14, 2019 - Lovely, mature, grizzly notes of gamey duck/quail, full of umami. Huge nose of fresh tobacco, newly charred wood, settling dark berry frame. This one isn't long for this world, but wildly interesting example of secondary/tertiary notes fully taking the wheel. Utter surprise.

    Had with mac-n-cheese. Strangely great. ($57 - Benchmark)

    October 31, 2018 - Just to reiterate the note from 5 months ago, this has entered its decline and should be consumed over the next year. The nose is still full of ripe berry fruits, and the palate is mature and complex. However, it is starting to exhibit signs of over aging on the palate.

    May 16, 2018 - A fully mature wine beginning its decline, so I would recommend consumption over the next few months to fully enjoy it. The nose is still packed full of ripe fruit but signs of overage are starting to appear. On the palate the wine is still showing great depth and length but the fruit is just starting to fade. Minimal decanting time is needed.

  • djhammond Likes this wine: 92 points

    October 16, 2017 - As per previous note, a beautifully balanced wine with good fruit. It possesses balance and is silky on the palate with a decent finish. From a personal point of view, it does need to be consumed over the next couple of years.
