    October 21, 2019 - Maturing red color, red to red brick at the rim, opaque center, clear. Nose is complex and substantial - cassis, leather, graphite, meaty to almost gamy, menthol notes, dense and rich. The palate is both dense and fine; there is both purity of fruit and layers of flavor. Cassis, some saline, berries and cherries, hint of plum skin, and a long lingering berry finish. Mature now, life left, fine wine.

    June 12, 2019 - lovely wine which certainly has some way to go - no rush at all

    November 28, 2018 - Chateau Latour - 30 year vertical (1983-2010) tasted blind (Switzerland): Nose is closed, coaxing aromas of red fruit and dark fruit, forest floor. Good stuffing on the palate here. A very complete Bordeaux.

    July 21, 2018 - Opened and decanted for 2 hours which was sufficient. Dark red color. No sign of bricking. Classic graphite nose. Palate really nice with dark fruits abundant. Tannin is well integrated. These are really coming into a nice place. Drink now or over the next 10 years.
