    October 13, 2021 - Opened last night. Open for business, very soft and lush and feminine. Very dark purple-ruby, and throwing a very fine sediment. Lovely nose of cassis and cocoa. Complexity personified. This is very elegant and rich, but it has a big fruit presence on the palate. Big-time mouth-coating dark fruit, with gobs of chewy tannin, and a bit of an herbal streak. This should last many more years, and may even improve. Very beautiful wine. 5-13-17-9: 94/100.

    July 1, 2021 - Based on what I’ve read here, I was predisposed not to love this wine and right out of the bottle, it’s very approachable. I’m sure with some breath time, will improve, however it’s very enjoyable now. I do agree with several comments where it is kind of flat (both on the nose and pallet) and not as tannic as I would have expected. It’s also more fruit forward than the old world style I was expecting. I will update, if this significantly evolves.
