    July 5, 2020 - The ultimate over performer. Nose red currant, cedar, plum. Palate shockingly fruit driven with nice acidity and plum fruit. Minerality and tannins there bit well integrated. Big and long finish. Ok it’s a bit rustic and burly. But it’s a castillon. This is really good serious juice. Not a tired bone in this bottle.

    June 20, 2020 - Reasonable Merlot based red, went well with quiche.

    April 17, 2020 - I had a great experience with this wine. Showed all the great characteristics of aged Bordeaux with earthiness and a bit of funky cheese on the nose. Nice mouthfeel and texture. Certainly did not have the structure or depth of top level Bordeaux but this was a real surprise.

    April 17, 2020 - Base level, old world cab. Closed throwing heavy sediment, give this a healthy decant to make the best of it.

    March 5, 2020 - This is a decent run of the mill Bordeaux that is better after an hour of air. Sorry I have so many as they are rather ordinary and are taking up valuable space.
