    January 21, 2023 - The 50 Big Bash (Harry's NYC): There were a few bottles of this floating around. One that was sadly corked, but a 5L provided by the hosts of the party that was just awesome. Fresh and pretty and herbal and floral and very well pulled together. Elegant and excellent wine.

    December 10, 2022 - Pleasant, correct, but no real spark. No fruit left, and nothing really to distinguish it.

    September 17, 2022 - Mildly corked, but enough to make it impossible to enjoy.

    August 13, 2022 - Still hanging in there. Required decanting and aerating, and took about another 45 minutes to come around.

  • paulst Likes this wine: 97 points

    May 18, 2022 - Lean, cigar, earthy, cedar and layered; nicely matured; elegant; finesse; layered and long; sweet finish.
