    February 3, 2018 - Still drinking beautifully

    October 28, 2017 - Another enjoyable showing tonight, takes a little to show the wonderful dried red berries, worn leather, spices and dried violets, the plate offers a similar profile with well integrated and soft tannins, medium acidity and medium plus length. Sadly my last bottle

    June 23, 2017 - My experience of this one was almost exactly opposite to the Harkins note where this one took an hour to get going. This bottle was awesome after cork pop but just really crashed after an hour. Lots of floral notes were noted by others right after this one was opened. I came around to this one after approximately 90 minutes and was not that impressed. This was more of a hawthorne kind of floral. Not the floral bouquet that was noted previously. The palate didn't resemble the higher echelon of CDP.

    February 16, 2017 - This is still a very tasty, now old, traditional CdP. The fruit is definitely fading now, which is why I have lowered my score from the last bottle that I tried a while ago. But it still has that sour cherry note, kirsch, garrigue and a medium finish.
