    January 15, 2022 - First bottle of six. Slow oxed for 4 hours prior to drinking. Very nice wine with lots of fruit and complex finish which bodes well for its future. I suspect this is more of a 10-15 year wine and it will be fun to follow it along.

    December 4, 2021 - CH Pontet Canet 2014
    Deep garnet ruby color. Nose of flora, violet, rose petals, fruity, full of youth and overtime emerged with intense riped fruit, sweet spice, roasted tomatoes with slight minty. Entry was elegance, rich character, refine tannins, well balanced structure with medium body mid palate. Finished is lengthy, lasted 50 secs and beyond. Transition from nose to finished is seemless. This wine is still at her youth, likely potential for further development. Suggest to revisit in 2-3 years time and enjoy over next 8-10 years. 93-95 pts

    December 2, 2021 - A balanced and refined nose for this relatively young Pauillac. Dense black fruits, toasted spices, seasoned leather, cedar and river gravel are skillfully presented in a calm and layered manner on the nose and on the palate. The length of this wine is amazing, there are tons of juicy fruits, fresh acidity and fine tannins underpinning the big but polished structure. So seamless in the transitions from a soft entry to a deep and powerful mid-palate to a lingering and refined finish. Still youthful but the phenolic components are already quite harmonised. It is approachable now with an hour of breathing. Keeping this for a few more years would be even better and you would be happily drinking this for the next 10-15 years. The quality equivalent of a second growth in Bordeaux. 94-95 pts.

    November 28, 2021 - This is typical Paulliac. 60% cab sauvignon, with merlot, cab franc and petit verdot. What I would call a voluptuous nose, with cassis and dark fruit. Full bodied, complex with black and blue fruit. Quite spicey as well. The tannins are very much present.

    November 20, 2021 - Judgment of Lafayette (West Lafayette, IN): Served blind. Nose of dark cherry syrup, black currants, and a touch of smoke. Medium-plus body, medium acid, and medium-to-medium-plus grippy tannins. Dark ripe fruits on the palate that were perhaps just a touch syrupy. While still certainly Bordeaux-like this had a richness that stood out from the others (and the Mayacamas the blended right in).
