    October 17, 2021 - This is still a baby but went well with steak after a long decant. I will definitely wait a few years before opening my other bottles, this is all power and fruit right now.

    August 8, 2021 - Cassis, black currents with hint of wood smoke on the nose. After some vigorous swirling some blue fruits begin to emerge. The palate had more black and blues fruits, some graphite and fine tannins. Medium plus acidity and a medium to long finish.

    Overall drinking very well today but still young with a long life ahead.

    August 1, 2021 - Solid wine and certainly enjoyable. Was a difficult vintage and likely the reason that it lacked structure after a couple of hours in the glass.

    May 24, 2021 - Gorgeous. Structured like a top Bordeaux, like an Angelus or Latour. Not overdone but intense fruit, big structure. Great depth of blueberry and black fruits. Some pepper and spice, hint of leather. Slightly dry finish - Long complex, drink now and over the next 10+ years.
